Re: $400.00 to replace a wheel lug stud..you gotta be kidding me!!
I've got a stripped lug on my front drivers wheel. I've also got a leaking boot on my passenger front axle. Since both jobs are related, I will be replacing both front axles (bought them on eBay for $120, about the same cost of having the dealer put on a replacement boot.). I will also replace both front wheel bearings, front breaks and all 10 front wheel studs. Given the age of the truck, I figure its easier to replace the worn parts all in one job. I will try to take pictures as I do the job, but I'm still waiting for some parts so it'll be a couple of weeks.
BTW, I got a similar quote from my dealership. Seeing what needs to be done, it's about right for a thee hour job at $125 an hour.
