its either to motor or that cab need to be removed supposedly. you wont be able to put the head over the stud in the back on the passenger side becuase the HVAC system is right up against it.

Here's a link for ya!

no pussyfooting around here on headstud job

I did studs on mine with the engine still in the cab too, and it's a pain to say the least.

Drivers side rear bolt will not come out unless you dent the firewall, if you cut the bolt head off to get it out the new stud still won't go in unless you dent the firewall, so it has to be done sooner or later.

I was told that the passenger side rear bolt/stud will not come out/or stud go in without taking the entireAC/Heater box completely out of the truck. But,,,,I did it without removing the entire ac/heater box, I removed the otter cover and condensor then cut a hole in the box so the bolt and stud could slide through to be removed/installed and plugged the hole after studs were in.

Do it right and pull the motor take the heads off and get them checked for cracks and warpage. Checking for cracks and warpage is more important than studs. Because studs do no good if the heads are cracked. Plus the HG's are probably starting to wear out. Do it right the first time so you won't ever have to do it again. Trust me I know.

+1 on that as well. I am also a member of the 6.0 headstud redo club(if I'm reading the above post correctly).
