Ok so recently i needed to change the wheel studs on my spyder, after searching for a how to and not finding one i decided to do a write up on it. First make sure you have all the tools to accomplish the job, you will need a way to get your lug nuts off of course, you will also need a way to safely support your vehicle as you work on it, and last of all you will need some type of hammer i used just a regular hammer because thats all i had but a dead blow would probably be a little easier on you drum. first off support the vehicle and take off the wheel.
Ok now remove the drum, the e-brake must be off for it to come off. Here are the two places i tapped the drum with the hammer.
Now with it off tap out the studs. There is a open space behind the studs that gives enough room to tap out the studs without hitting anything.
Ok now slide the new studs in and then slide the drum back on carefully. Then tap the drum all the way on.
Pull the E-brake to keep the drum in place. Then put a spare lug nut on the studs and tighten them enough to stay in, then put the wheel on and crank them down till they feel seated in. after your done go for a drive and check to make sure they are tight.
