I recently replaced my rotors and found knocking the studs out was a breeze but pressing them back in - not so much.
I used the Lisle tool with Dorman lug studs 610-179 and found the tool barely left...

Engine hoist was the only way I could get that heavy monster in. There was just enough clearance without removing the hood.

If you are still interested, I plan to pull down the headliner in my 88 w/sunroof (actually works) in the next couple of weeks. Will be taking a bunch of pictures along the way.

Seems like a 5th would be more than the J10 can handle unless you manage to find a very small one.
Then you'll have to punch holes in the bed for the hitch.
