I recommend you get a repair manual if your going to work on your own vehicle. It's real easy now that they're available online. To be better prepared when working on your vehicle, read up on the job you're about to perform, it will show you component locations, bolt torque settings and what special tools you'll need. There are also technician tips related to your specific vehicle.
Try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and you can have one in minutes. The wheel studs are available at your local Napa auto parts store and you might need them to press out the old stud and press in the new stud so call ahead and find one with a machine shop if this needs pressing. You can find one here www.napaonline.com
