I have new studs, and new cones, so I don't care if I have to destroy them, but I'd rather not.
You talking about the ones like the ones on the old GM style axles. I had the same problem you had and hit the end of my steering arm with a 2lb sledge and worked them loose that way. I did it on a 85 suburban but I'm guessing that it would work the same with your application.
