Front wheel studs broken
Seems the PO overtightened the lugs on the front, and I broke 2 trying to remove wheels.
Do these come out, and can anyone tell me how?
Thanks in advance for any input concerning my dilemma:banghead:

Not sure how but be sure to replace all five studs and torque the new ones. I am sure they used an impact gun at some point.

Typically wheel studs can be hammered out. You hammer them in and they will fall out the back side of the flange.

If you are lucky then you will have access to hammer the broken studs out of the wheel hub without moving it from the rig. On my 99, I had to remove the hubs to gain enough room to install the new studs. A nationwide tire retailer overtightened my lugs and I had to replace 15 out of 20 on my rig.
