Take off tire and wheel
unbolt the bolts that connect the drive flange to the wheel hub.
pull out axle shaft
then get a spindle nut socket for a 14FF then undo the lock nut, remove lock washer, the remove second lock nut and then the thrust washer.
from there the hub can be removed with disc or drum attatched.
from here either poud out stud with brass drift or press it out. then press in new stud or pound in with brass drift.
no re assemble everything reverse of disassembly.
gear oil will come out so get some rags and a pan to catch it in. GOOD LUCK
