Question about 2005 Chevrolet Uplander
I have never done one on this vehicle but have replaced many on all other cars over the years, this is what i experienced, the stud will pound out with a good 2-3 lb. hammer, and the new stud and nut will get pulled back through the empty hole by use of a strong impact wrench...start the stud by hand try to pull it as much as you can through the splined hole in the axle flange, install the new nut backwards on the stud screw it down as far as you can then with the 1/2' drive impact wrench on full throttle tighten the lug nut...by doing this you are pulling the stud through the void hole.
Please remeber to use a small amount of axle grease on the new stud and hole prior to installing the replacement stud and nut.
You prbably have to remove the disc brake caliper and brake pads along with the rear disc brake rotor to gain access to the stud, there should be an access hole also allowing you to get behind the axle flange for removal and installation.
Hope this works.
