I've been asked to make this video for some time and I was just waiting for a vehicle to come in that needed new studs. Well, not only did I get one in that needed a new stud, but it needed 2 studs. This doubles our fun for this video. The principal was the same for both studs. Some of you might not agree with this method and that's OK. But I can say that I've done it this way for many years and have not had one come back yet for an issue. However, if you feel you don't want to employ this method, you can remove the axle nut, slide hammer the hub out of the bearing, replace the stud on the bench, press the hub back into the bearing, and hope your bearing doesn't go bad as a result of separating it. Either way works. Here's some links to some tools you might find useful that were mentioned in the video.
