    Not too bad to change. Just time consuming, using the 2 nuts method.

    On a domestic, I don't think it's possible to remove them with the cylinders in place.

    Yep. And I wouldn't use threaded rod, maybe remove the stockers, clean them up and use red loctite when you reinstall them. Threaded rod may not have the same strength of the studs and may stretch or break under pressure and heat. Not to mention corrosion resistance would prob be far less.

    I'd get a stud remover and pull them and apply loctite and reinstall them.

    Like mentioned, dont use ready rod.

    You got a pic of a stud remover? I've never seen one.

    They look like a socket......

    I dont use this kind here, but it gives you an idea. You can buy individual ones for certain sizes say 8mm or 10mm studs.
