Is this possible?

I have each one bad stud each side of front axle, basically I try to avoid opening up everything from the locking hubs, etc.

Is there any way to change the studs without removing it all?

You will need a spindle nut socket for dana44
a small pick.
torque wrench
Maybe Snap ring pliers
are the lock out hubs stock?

Use very light grease on the hubs

Sim,
Not a big deal to disassemble the hubs. Just place the first parts you remove, (6 bolts) on paper/cardboard, in succession to the inner seal, then reassemble in reverse. You can check the engagement/disengage during this process. No big deal.

yeah, ok !
I need to stop being shy of those things.

today I will mount the GT bar and start with rear carpet and bench mounting parts.

when nut arrives, I will go into the hubs.
