    put a nut over the stud then put your lug over the nut. Tighten the lug nut down and it will pull the stud through the hub.

    If you don't have a torque wretch, buy one.. No more than 85 ft/lbs to tighten the lugs!!!


    and oh, yeah.....rightie-tightie, leftie-loosey

    all i did when mines broke was hit it with a hammer until it came out. but for the new one to go in, i used a rubber hammer( fucked up the hammer). you'll have to improvise!!!
