front hub stud replacement

upon rebuilding my dana 30 i find that the 6 studs holding the hub on are weak and stripped,has anyone replaced them without removing the knuckle and just draw them in tight with a nut just like you do a wheel stud????? any input would be great. thanks in advance

For the locking hub? Double nutting them will work but if they're loose you might as well pull them out, clean the holes and loc tite them before they go back in. If they came loose once, they'll come loose again.

The advertised position for a topless, dirty jeep girl has been filled......by my wife. Thanks to all that applied.

If thats the case I'd be leery of just sucking them back in. If the teeth on the studs won't grab or are spinning/loose in the knuckle I'd be pulling it apart to inspect it closer and see whats going on with the knuckle.

**Edit, NM, I see now what he's proposing. That should be fine if you have enough room to feed the new studs in from the back.**
