I stripped a wheel stud on the rear wheel while changing a flat. I
purchased a new stud and bolt at the auto parts store and will try to
change the stud tomorrow. The truck has rear disc brakes. Is it simply
banging out the old stud and putting the new one in ? Any advice
appreciated. Thanks

Well I just finished replacing the wheel stud. There are a few tips I
would like to share:

My rear rotor would not come out easily. I ended up having to loosen
the star adjuster for the e-brakes since it was holding the rotor on.

Removing the old stud is a lot easier with one of the e-brake shoes
moved out of the way.

In order to remove the old stud once it is hammered out, you have to
orient the hub in a certain spot so you can back out the stud far
enough to clear the hub, otherwise the stud will hit the rear shield,
so make sure both wheels are off the ground so you can turn the wheel
hub. You can't do this with one wheel on the ground.
