Wheel Stud Broken

I broke a wheel lug stud while replacing a tire on the rear wheel of my blazer. Does anybody know the procedure for changing this on a blazer, I don't know if the stud is threaded in, or if it is press fit. Thanks.

If it's drum brakes, then it's easy. If it's disc brakes, your going to have to remove the caliper, pad holder and rotor to access them. Get an extra nut to use to draw the new one in. Space it out with some washers and use the nut backward, with the flat side in to draw the stud through.

To my way of thinking, if one is broken, the rest are suspect. It is rare for me to change just one stud.... Anal? maybe.... but for the few bucks, there's peace of mind.
