    I need to replace one of my wheel studs on one of the rear wheels and just wondering if anyone can tell me how this is done. I have replaced these before on my car but never on a truck this big. Anything special or do i just hammer it out the back and install the new one?

    When I snapped a wheel stud on my 2002 Nissan Altima it was a breeze to replace it. Pull the wheel, bang out the snapped bit of stud and the new one I was able to press in by just tightening the lug nuts.

    Got a wheel bearing for my truck last fall and it came without studs pressed in, so I bought a set and spent alot of wasted time trying to get those things in...damn near impossible with home tools to do it...though to be fair, I was trying to do all 8 and it was off the truck, might be vastly more simple when its just one and its already on the truck.
