Exhaust stud problems
So I've got the Mrs' Hemi Commander on stands, 205k miles, have put new filters in the trans and a transgo shift kit. New plugs and coils are in for a random misfire issue. Diff is out for bushing replacements and when it goes back in so does new sway bar bushings and links. So while the diff is out I tackled the broken exhaust studs. After the chore of removing the heat shields, I found out one stud on the driver side is broke off flush with the head. My question is, how have you went about fixing the stud? A friend suggested pulling the motor mounts, lifting and moving the motor over as far as it will go and drilling with a right angle drill. Seems doable, but prone to problems. My grandfather suggested pulling the motor. I've thought about pulling the heads and replacing lifters while I'm at it but it's aggravating putting this much money into a car I just bought.
