I use a brass rod and a hammer. You should use a piece of pipe or a socket under where the stud is to press them out if we are talking about studs pressed into a cast iron rotor so you don't crack the casting.

I only use this method when there is no other way. It will take much more torque to pull the studs into place then they can handle. You will end up messing up the brand new studs that you are putting in. Last time I used washers and nut to do the "pull it in" technique I was in the parking lot of Autozone about 50miles from home.

I have a shop press I was thinking of using. A friend of mine was trying to talk me into the lug nut way. I am worried about stripping the studs out.

Shop press

The use of the shop press is the ideal way to replace those studs..just be sure and line them up straight when you fixture them..

Either way, a little grease on the splines (& threads if you're pulling them in) makes it easier.

I read that Moroso studs should not be used with wheel spacers. I am using ARP wheel studs and I have wheel spacers. They are part # 100-7702. Should this be a problem?
