TOYOTA LANDCRUISER AXLE PROBLEM

I have snapped of 5 of my 6 rear wheel studs while driving down the road after changing all my tyres last week. I used a rattle gun to tighten the nuts. What could have caused the studs to break and are the studs fitted through the plate on the end of the axle, as in most rear wheel drives? If so do I have to remove the axle, diff centre etc to change them?
