does anyone have a guide to replacing a rear hub on a vs..

i have never done one before :confused: :confused:

young punks decided it would be a funny idea to loosen my wheels nuts, minus the lock nut to see what would happen.. turns out it wasnt much fun :axe:

any help would be appreciated!

Put simply, you just need to tap/hammer the studs out backwards then hammer/tap new ones in. The are only a few dollars each. Unless the actual hub is distorted there is no need to replace the whole caboodle. his link will explain it all....it's not rocket science and you can save a big heap of $$$$ if you do it yourself. Good Luck.

ps...I've presumed it is a solid rear.
