    Default Shop to press in axle studs

    Anyone know a shop that would do this? I’ve got like 4/10 in with tools, now I’m stripping lugs trying to finish the other 6.... Probably shouldn’t be thisss hard, but it is, and that’s where I’m at... haha thanks.

    Just did this on my brother's car.

    Bought extra cheap lug nuts. Make sure you use washers. We got them in with a breaker bar.

    Had the stud tool(bearing to rest against axle), and anti seize and a 4 foot HSS breaker bar haha. The nuts were like butter..

    Ended up using a 20 ton press at a friend of a friends shop!
