take a big hammer, pound out the old studs, pound new studs in, thats how i do it, i dont take off shit

but an air hammer makes the install alot easier

hondas are the same as other cars? i hate using air hammers for wheel studs...

i usually set them in den impact it on with the wheels to pull them in.

i hate the ones that dont enough clearance den you got cut or sand the round part a bit

once again, it looks like i have to pull the hub. there is not enough room for the stud to come out without it hitting the back plate.i know that most of the time ,yes, you can drift them out.not in this case
