I use an air hammer to drive the old one out.
But it can be done with a hammer and a punch.
And then guide the new one in.
Some times you have to rotate the hub to get it to line up with a place that has enough clearance.
Then I use a couple of large washers that will go over the stud.
Put some grease on both sides of both washers
out the washers on the stud, then use a lug nut on backwards (so the flat side is against the washers)
and use the nut to pull the stud into place.
Just recheck the lug nut torque after a couple hundred miles of driving incase the stud pulls in a little more
