If it's the fronts then it should be easy just go to ford or a local auto store an as them for a replacement. With the front's you should be able to take a hammer an punch it out an put the new one in, the should be a little opening in back where the old one should fall out an be able to put the new one in. the back brakes on the other hand..........?????????? dont know.

Well if you got the TQ wrench an rest of the right tools i would go for it. If i were in your shoes i whold just replace all the wheel studs. CFM has ARP extended studs but there not cheap.

I don't think the cost of new wheel studs is too expensive, if I were you, I might look into changing all 4. Just to be consistant, but then again, it might not make much/any difference.

I just changed all of my front wheel studs...but that was so could run 5mm spacers in front :D
