I hate to see a question like this go unanswered but helping is our main goal. Have you looked on G6 Performance? Those guys do a lot more mechanical stuff there.

Thanks, look at G6 Performance and only found a post about the rear ones. I need to replace one in the front.

What I really need to know is if the hub needs to be removed in order to remove them.

a good ol hammer would do the trick. At least it worked on my truck.
Last time I replaced studs on my 96 Eclipse, I just used a hammer as well. Hit it once, hit it twice, and the 3rd time pops it out smooth like ice. :D
