One of my studs on the rear passenger side broke off. I'd like to replace all ten of them in the rear with a similar stock replacement that is longer. I'm using standard chrome Chevy open ended lug nuts.

Can anyone suggest where to buy replacements that would be around an inch longer?

Not sure how long I can actually go without having to pull the axel to fasten them in place.

Moroso has long wheel studs. I bought some aftermarket axles for my 56 Sedan Delivery from Randy's Ring and Pinion, since they're only about 2 miles from me as-the-crow-flies. I believe they were Dutchman at the time; now they sell Yukon as their house brand. Went to install some longer studs I had on hand, and they would't fit, despite being CORRECT for the car (???); they would need a stud with a LOT smaller knurled shank. Went back into Randy's; "you need these special wheel studs". "Well, why did't you sell them to me when I picked up the axles"? Blank face, did't know what to say, but sold me the new wheel studs. So, be SURE you get the correct wheel studs for the axles you have/buy-bought. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

Do you have to remove the brakes to pull the axels on a stock rear end? If I remember right, I thought I only had to remove 4 bolts on each side to remove the axel.

I need to get the studs pressed out and new ones pressed back in.

It seems to me years ago I had a broken rear stud and I know I didn't remove the axle. Probably the brake stuff but that was 50+ years ago. I know we just pounded the old one out with a punch and you just draw the new one in with a lug nut and a BUNCH on washers or some spacer.
