How much should it cost 2 repair broken wheel stud

Me and my friend was doing my shocks & springs the other day and I broke one of the wheel studs on my front wheel . I did a search but came up empty. I found some info for a older Accord but was told it's different for a 01.
I called Midas and was told it would cost about $75. should I just let them do it?

yeah you take the hub off the spindle, break out the broken stud, replace it adn go from there, on a difficulty scale of 1-10, its probably a 6, but on a PITA scale, its like a 8 or 9 cause of how hard it is get the hubs off....

Ok thanks for the info.
Funny you couldn't get off that big nut and I couldn't get the 2 philip screws out. You do have to take out those screws right?

you are going to pay 70 bucks. gawdd damnn that to much money... You can take it to one of those little rinky dinky tire shops and they can do all of your studs for that price.. I cant remember how much I got charged for doing it on my brothers truck but they usually just put another one back in its place and do some tightening with there air tools. just go to one of those places.. they can do it for alot cheaper than regular places.

I'm gonna look around but.
I tried again last night.
Got up to the part after the rotor and was stuck again.
I couldn't get off the part that the studs go through.
