You need to remove the wheel of course. It depends on if the silverado is like the 1997 GMC 3/4 ton K2500 4x4. If so, then the easiest way is to remove the hub with the rotor because on the GMC the lug bolts go through both making them one unit. I just changed out the lugs on a 1997 GMC as mentioned above while replacing the ABS / wheel bearing hub assembly in which I had found to be the easiest procedure. Place the unit on the bench and look to locate the back of the lug nuts so you can see if there is anything else you may want to do to make things easier and then drive the lugs out in the steps that follow. If the lugs are part of the rotor and not driven through the hub assembly and into the rotor, then you would simply remove the rotor and lay it on something flat, clean and sturdy and use a drift or center punch with a persuasion tool such as a hammer to drive them out by placing the punch on the face of the sheered side of the stud and smack the punch with a hammer driving it out the back side. You then you put the new one on by pushing it through the hole from the back side of the rotor and tap it in until fully seated. Put everything back together and safe travels.

SOURCE: broken wheel stud
1. get new studs and nuts
3. remove caliper at bracket to spindle connection(2 18mm bolts?)you may need to remove caliper from bracket,but not always nessacery. Or remove drum,then to #5
4.remove rotor,will need a hammer, tap inbetween studs dont wreck good studs and see if new studs can be installed without removing parking brake shoes. If there is no clearance to get new stud in you will need to remove shoes.
5.Pound out old studs place new stud in hole use a washer on outside then put a nut on and tighten to install stud, A air gun or some type of impact tool will be very helpful. Check to see that stud has enough threds to pull stud all the way thru ,add more washers if nessecary dont let the nut run out of threds it will **** to get back off and wreck new stud.
6. if you dont have air gun or feel comfertable removing brakes bring it to a reputable garage, shouldnt cost more than $70+ parts to get all new studs put in on one wheel.

SOURCE: broken stud on left front wheel
Remove: wheel, brake caliper & rotor. Drive out the remaining stub with a hammer and punch. Insert a new stud and pull it into place by tightening the lug nut. Before running out of threads, remove the nut, insert a stack of washers or a large nut which slips over the threads without contacting them, tighten the lug nut to seat the stud.

grind a flat spot on the round head of the new stud this should give enough clearance to install it. don't pull the hub this will damage the bearing.
