1974 Early Dana 44

Hello all, i just recently picked up a 74 dodge powerwagon that has had a problem with front wheel studs, finally got the lugs drilled out to find out the the previous owner had welded in grade 5 bolts and washers to hold the wheel on, i however am going to have new studs installed but have run into a road block. i have the lockouts off and was just wondering if the spindles (not sure if its the spindle, but the piece with the studs pressed into it) are pressed in or if they should just pull off? its and early 74 with drum brakes and is not a full time 4x4 rig.

Sorry, i didn't mean the studs themselves, i meant the piece the studs are press into? im not sure what you call it, but is it pressed onto the spindle?

theres the steering knuckle and the spindle thats bolted to the knuckle that the wheel bearings ride on / its held on the knuckle by 6 nuts / use either a brass hammer or mallet or a 4x4 block of wood an a BFH
