I have some wheel studs that broke off , 3 in the front that has disc brakes and 1 in the back which is drum

Ive replaced studs on a newer vehicle but is this fairly easy to do , as far as the front just take the rotor away and pop them off

Is there any easy way to get this done

Pull the drum off and you will see the axle. You may be able to pop the old stud out and insatll the new one without pulling the axle. You can use a socket for a sleeve and turn the lugnut backwards to pull the new stud into place. As for the front studs you will have to remove the brake rotor to install the new studs.

I popped the old ones out with a 4lb hammer and piece of 2x4. Beat the new ones in the same way with some anti-seize in both axles in the rear and both rotors up front. Wore me out too. I tried using a socket and lug nut to suck em in the axle but it just stripped the nut. The splines on the studs were longer than the factory which is why I feel that didn't work for me.
