Has anyone ever changed rear wheel studs without removing the wheel spindle  
flange?  I want to install slightly longer studs.  I can see that I  can drive 
them out and should be able to slip new ones into the holes but was  
wondering if it is possible to use old lug nuts and cinch the new studs in until  they 
bottom out with a big wrench or air impact.  Not sure if I can pull  them 
fully in with this method.  I am also not sure if I may damage  something else by 
driving them out while on the car.
