Hi kjparkhurst,

Not too easy.

You need to remove spindle nut, pull hub slightly out for the new stud to go in. Remove/loosen old stud before loosening spindle nut.

After installation, tighten and loosen spindle nut a few times to get the hub seated fully. Improper installation would cause the bearing to go bad.
