Remove the wheel. Remove the cailper and the rotor. Pound out the studs and use an installer for pulling through the new studs. You may have to grind off a flat spot on the new ones to get them into the hub.

Make sure you torque the wheel when completed.

I cant hammer out the broken ones because they hit the hub and it doesnt look like there is alot of clearance to get the broken ones out and the new ones in?

Move the hub around so you can get some clearance to remove. Otherwise, the hub would have to be removed.

The axle nut has to be removed, the upper and lower ball joints broken free. The outer tie rod end broken free and then the hub has to be pressed out of the bearing.

I would let a shop look at it first as we have no issues replacing them with it all together.

Loosen the axle shaft nut and use a slide hammer to pull the hub out for additional clearance to remove/install the stud.

Care has to be taken while tightening the axle nut as improper handling can and will damage the wheel bearing.

If you take the knuckle out, you are going to have problem getting the hub pressed out.
