i have to replace one of my right rear lugnut studs friday. anyone tackled this before?
and before someone comes in and says "beat it out", theres more to it then that. there is not enough room behind the stud to knock one out, or get a new one in.

you should be able to remove the caliper, rotor, and backing plate, and knock it out. if not you have to pull the axle

removed the back plate, the rotor with the brake caliper. the back plate really doesnt give you any extra room

and i was afraid of your last statement

Go old school then if you don't have enough room. Get in there with a grinder and cut about an inch off the stud then just knock it out.

doesn't do much good if you have to put one back in

Someone on S197forum just did this without taking there axles out. Lemme see if I can find the article.

Damn, no instructions on the rears, but he says he just removed the caliper,bracket and dust guard.

I've replaced my rear axle studs. Didn't have to remove the axle for sure! Just a tap with a good size hammer to start them out then line up the stud with the hole in the caliper shield thing. If you're going oversize that may be an issue though.
