On the front you have to remove the caliper and rotor. Then hit the stud with a hammer. When you go to put in the new stud you need to have spare washers and lug nut. Put in the stud. Take the spare lug nut and washers. Put the washers on the stud. then the lug nut. You need to space out the lug nut from the bottom of the stud.
