Wheel stud replacement

What's the process with replacing a rear wheel stud? I have a stripped one thanks to the stupid fvcks that installed my old wheels/tires and I need to replace it ASAP so I can drive my truck. Also, where should I go to get a new wheel stud?

Just give the stud a few good hits and it will come out the back. Just be sure not to hit any of the good studs.

Yeah hit the old one out and then put the new one in place and tighten down an open end lugnut on it and it will press in. Not sure if you're gonna be able to do it with the axle shafts still in the axle however. You can buy them at Advance Auto and they should have them in stock, I bought one there before.

you should be able to put it in with out a problem. it will be a tight fit but that how i like it. make sure you keep an eye on it make sure to check for tightness after a week or so.

Yea I've already got the new one in and everything. Took me like an hour because I had to go back to Autozone to get an open end lug nut.

for future reference, if you use 3-4 washers behind it you can just use the chrome closed one, an open ended lug nut usually doesn't tighten it down all the way because the splines come through the flange and stop the stud from pulling all the way through

Yea I used washers but I just wanted to make sure I didn't screw up a lug or anything with the good lug nut.

nice to know you got it in, Tyler. and yes, its always good to use a different lug nut than you are going to use on the truck so you don't mess it up.
