Broken Lug Studs

I snapped two off a front wheel. I am told it's fairly simple to do if someone has new studs. Is this something I should tackle or just take it to a shop? And can anyone gimme a rough idea on what thay paid to have it done?

its very cheap
theyr like 5$ per stud and depending on shop usualyl charge you 10-20$
i did them myself and i had a shop redo them. so i say let shop do it. id recommend driving extremely slow to the shop.

plus torque gun to factory specs always beats whatever you do with your stock torque wrench lol

i put some on my old bird and on my sisters car. just get out the ol' BFH and knock them out of there. use some washers or something behind the lugnut and pull the new ones thru the hub. it can be done, but if you really don't know what you're doing take it to a shop
