    How much to replace 2 lug bolt stud things...

    I was rotating my tires yesterday, and 2 of them broke off while taking off my lugnuts...

    Damnit...

    This never happened before, rotated my tires a million times on my Altima, slowly work them all 4 off at the same rate, not stupidly trying to take off 1 and a time, but ugh...

    Also the first time I ever even took off the wheels on the G, so I'm thinking the previous owner, when they had new tires put on, the shop machine tightened the wheels on, and over tightened them or something.

    Anyway, around how much should it cost to replace them?

    I originally thought it can't be too hard, but then someone else told me a shop needs to do it because they're machine pressed in.

    Anyway, um, ballpark price?

    I got some alike studs for my NX at NAPA once, and I pressed them in by tightening open lugs down like crazy.

    I'm sure some purists are going to get all busted about that idea though, they should be pressed in to make sure they're in properly. anyone else want to chime in with the right way?

    happend to P11Gdub...its quite inexpensive. Ive sone it before and its REAL easy to do...just get a mallet and hammer it out. make sure to rotate the rotor so the lug you want to pop out doesnt hit the brake shield and pound it out with a mallet or a hammer if you want to me gangsta. replace the broken one with the new one and hit it in. bam...your done. then you can tighten the nut to let the lug sit in place tightly...

    we share the same colossal strength.

    it's a very easy fix, and one stud cost me $1.50. EvilYak did mine when we installed my coils. spin the rotor, so the back of the bolt is clear (from the sheild). then tap out the snapped bolt. pop in the new bolt from the rear, and thread on a lugnut by hand. as you tighten the lugnut, it will align the bolt, nice and straight.

    They do it because of their crazy Juggernaut strength.

    Same thing happened to me..I used some washers and stacked those on the new stud once it was through the rotor and used my stock lug to pull it through with the washers under. Do what P11GDub said..I did it the hard way and removed my calipers along with the whole rotor. I didn't see a spot for the stud to go through, but a second look revealed it..too bad I had already done it the hard way...and make sure you use washers around the stud when you put the lug on...Mike, I don't think the stock lug nut is long enough to be tightened over the stud alone..you need some washers under it OR you can use an open ended lug nut which might be easier than the washers.

    I took it to the shop for the heck of it (one of the ghetto ones) and they told me $60-$80..I did it for about $3.00

    Same here about $8 total. If the lug comes off it is easy. If the lug is stuck on it is harder. Either way like the guys said it can be done by oneself.
