The parking brake, the abs wheel speed sensor, and the dust shield are all in the way of removing the stud. You also said there is no need to remove the hub, but then give instructions on how to remove the axle nut. Should I remove the axle nut? If so, doesn't this also involve moving/removing the hub? I'm a little confused at this point and any additional help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

I'm sorry, I've never done it on a Subaru, so no real help from me
I gave you information about axle nut to answer your questions. I did not mean to imply that axle nut must be removed, I simply gave you tips on removing it, just FYI. Maybe you do need to remove the hub in this case, I am not sure.
Like I said, the hub nut (or axle nut) size is 32 mm. It should not be reused.
