Breaking those really isn't too difficult. Kinda why I laugh at the Wheel Lug nut locks.
99.9% sure that they just press right out, but I have seen some lugs that screw in. Take a punch or bolt and hammer it out.
You may or may not be able to weasel a new lug in behind the wheel flange to install the new one. If you can, then great, you've saved opening the diff, removing the C-clip and then the shaft.
If you can get tehlug in there, stack some washers around the lug then take a sacrficial lug nut and run it down to pull the lug into the flange and fully seat it.
