Replace stripped lug studs

New tires yesterday, tire shop found a lug nut on each of the rear wheels stripped so they gunned them off with my permission. I've read here how to replace the studs, how difficult is it to do on an 02 voyager mini-van.
Thanks in advance

Haven't worked on a Voyager/Chrysler product, but typical stud replacement on a GM minivan involves removing the wheel and brake drum, drive the bad stud out with a hammer (and punch, if broken off), and pull the new stud in using the lug nut with washers underneath as spacers, if necessary. It's not a hard job to do.

Thanks Formula, sounded easy enough, butttt, not enough room to drive out the old stud by about a quarter inch. Moving the brakes helped some. Looks like the hub with the studs will have to come off. Doesn't look hard to do. I'll need more tools and a repair manual, I'll never learn hahaha.
