I have a 1998 Chevy Suburban K2500 4x4 7.4L engine (gas) that I am
experiencing some of the well documented brake issues. I need to remove the
front rotors (warped again) and have a couple of questions that are not
addressed in the service manual.
1. Can I remove the wheel studs (carefully) with a good punch and
hammer --- or do I really need to use a shop press as suggested in the
service manual ? To re-install the studs I was planning on pulling them
into place with a spare lug nut & washers.
2. Do I need to replace all the wheel studs with new ones or can the old
ones be re-used ? I wasn't sure if wheel studs were a "one time install
only" type of thing.
Thanks for the help.
