Ill quote myself here..
Ouch, that is going to be ugly. They can be a bugger to press out and press the new ones into place. Might be better off to have a shop do this for you. I went the cheap and easy way, sorry for the difficulties that lie ahead of you getting them in place. They will give you Monte the nice offset look when done, that's a good positive out of this situation.

Yea, thankfully the car came from california so there is no rust and they come out with just a few taps.. Made myself a nice little tool for the impact gun to pull the new studs into place. Cant get a hammer behind there.

Fun fact.. GM made replacement studs shorter than stock so when (if) a shop needs to replace them, they dont need to disassemble the hub.. I would think thats a safety hazard. Theyre short enough as it is..

A link to an ebay search for the spacers.

Is there any way to get a thinner spacer? The ARP studs are already pretty long, almost 1" longer than stock. I'd be afraid going too much further out as you're creating more torque load on the fastener by carrying the cars weight further out from the hub. Gets even more concerning with cheapo studs.

Dont have enough info to do a real calculation to see how much safety factor it eats away, but I'd think that's the main reason they dont offer longer fasteners. You can only improve material so much before you need to go larger diameter to carry the load further out.
