if you have a press it is easy.. i.e. take hub off and press them out.. if not you'll probably be best tightining a heavy duty clamp or something on the old stud and then beating it with a hammer. Actually a ball joint splitter might work... you just need to get a lot of pressure on the stud to push it out and the hammer can help to break its grip... but dont beat too hard, lol.. new ones press in. You can use a not on the end of the old stud to save bending it up which can make removal a slag pig.

Don`t take the hubs off, on the rear its a real pig. The front studs you knock them straight through, remove calliper first, on the rear you`ll find the hub gets in the way, on mine i found the stud had a flat side on the end at the hub so it could slide past the hub it self, remove calliper first, studs slide out at the calliper side. When choosing studs the rear studs have a larger shoulder then the front ones, or they did on mine.
