Thumbs down broken wheel studs on 86 chevy pickup

I have broken wheel stud on the rear axle. A tire idiot (man) over tightened it. How do I replace it? Do I need to remove the axle shaft from the axle??

I would have the tire guy fix it. Remove the drum, take a blunt chisel and a big hammer and knock the stud base out the back side of the flange. Then replace with the correct stud. Tire place should have them in the back room or go to Auto parts store.

Hope they didn't overtighten the rest enough to seriously weaken them but not break them. They ought to make them get a license to operate an impact wrench!

I had 2 missing studs on my 85 Sierra when I first got it. I just took a punch and hit the broken studs out. then I just tapped the new ones back in the holes. Pretty simple
