Replacing a rear wheel stud

Is there a simpler way to do this without ripping everything apart? Thanks in advance.

no there isn't but the job isn't that difficult either. Remove the 36mm nut, toe arm, 2 top suspension arms, and sway bar link. The bearing assembly with the studs is attached by three bolts. You can likely bang out the studs with a hammer at this point. Reinstall studs with a lisle stud install tool and an impact.

You can get the wheel bearing out without removing the toe / link bolts. Not saying it's easier than undoing the arms and moving the knuckle down, it real tight getting to one of the three bearing hub bolts with the half-shaft in the way.

if you can do that then you are amazing...the bolts are almost completely shrouded by the axle shaft and the approach angle is not direct. It looks like a recipe for a rounded bolt if this isn't fully disassembled. I tried but it ends up being more efficient for direct access to fully disassemble.

Been there, done that. Next time on my car or friends cars I wrench on, I'll do it the other way.
