Rear Wheel Stud Replacement
Getting some conflicting info on how to replace a rear wheel stud. Anything from just hammering them out to having to pull the axle out. Do I just need to remove the brake drum, "tap" the bad stud out, and put the new one in?
from here it gets rough

I installed 10 new wheel studs on my buddies new axle shafts. We used a stack of washers, lugnut and the impact to pull the studs into the flange. We also pulled the threads out of 2 lug nuts in the process. If you just need to replace 1 broken stud bang it out and pull it in with the washer/ nut trick. If you're doing all 5 pull the axle and use a press.

Late reply, but maybe still useful. I just did this yesterday. I smacked it through with a BFH, lined the new one up, and then carefully put the wheel back on. I then held the threads with a large flathead screwdriver and started the lugnut. I was then able to get it to bite enough to tighten the lugnut, which pulled the stud through. Only took a few minutes.
Got my eye on you.....
I use a wheel stud installation kit I got at sears for about $35. Works everytime flawlessly.
