Question HELP... Replacing rear wheel studs with longer ones...??

Does anyone know how I would go about replacing the rear OEM Studs with Longer wheel studs? How do I take the assembly apart??

My problem is that I don't have enough room behind the wheel stud plate and the rear drum casing to get the stud through the hole.

Does the wheel stud plate come off?? I'm having trouble with the rears not the fronts. The fronts are done.

You will probably have to pull the axle shaft.

The studs are in the end plate of the shaft. If you pull the shaft you can knock them in from the back. My Ranger just had enough room to change them without pulling the shaft. Idk if you can unbolt the backing plate.

I may be wrong, but can't you just drill a hole through the backing plate and punch the stud through the hole?

I don't think you can unbolt the backing plate.

Thank you.. when our wheel came off in an accident could not for the life of me remember if we took it of ourselves (obviously not) or took it to shop to get pressed out.

We tried.. we also took it to his work (at a delaership) and they didn't have a press that could get his bearing/backing plate out. We ended up walking to some press shop, and for 15/20 they put it in a big ass press, pressed everything out, then pressed the new parts in. They even mentioned how "hard" it was to get everything pressed out. We lost our wheel on the freeway, pretty much everything in the passenger rear had to be replaced.
