i did a brake job on my 2003 s10 a few weeks ago. since then , on the passenger side i have lost a lug nut that i know i snugged on there, and just discovered that one of the studs on my passenger wheel broke, and now i lost another lug nut and a stud. i got studs out of an old wheel bearing, do you think it'd be safe to swap studs out or do you think i should just replace the wheel bearing?

If the bearing itself is fine, it's more cost effective to just swap the studs (unless you need to remove the bearing in order to swap), but how many have you lost now? 2? It's worth checking the other 3 to make sure they're not cracked or overstressed. I'd also recommend new studs over used if possible.
