I took off my wheels today to do some cleaning/painting on the frame behind them. All the lug nuts were extremely tight, I almost had to stand on my breaker bar to get them to loosen. Once I got them off I put a little oil on the studs and put it back on. All was well... until the last one. It never loosened, just stayed tight while I turned it. I figured it was turning the stud or getting ready to twist off, it twisted off. I figured better now in the garage than later on the road/trail. I have the factory drum brakes. I went to quadratec to see if they had parts, I found the oem chrome lug nuts, $1.49 everybody else wanted $10+. When I searched for wheel studs it came up with 4 results. No description on any of them. The part numbers were 52428 followed by 00 02 03 and 04. Which one do I need? It is the passenger side rear wheel. I have a '98 TJ with stock brakes. Also, are these pressed in or are they something I can install easily without a press? And one last thing. To remove the drum I just take off those spring clips on the studs and pull the drum off? Thanks guys.

Can only answer one question for ya, if they are press in studs, you don't really need a press, even though it's nice to have.

You can simply sacrifice a lug nut with large steel washers, use a impact gun, the lug nut and washers to draw the stud into place. I've done it several times...works like a champ.

I threw a stud on my jeep and had my tire place put on in. It cost me $10 and I didn't have to worry about it.
