Default Front Wheel stud replacement 03 wrx

Trying to replace old wheel studs with new ones. I removed the old ones with no problem but cant figure out how to insert the new ones so they align with the grooves? Theres no real room to hammer in the new studs from the back, any suggestions would help.

Get one of these for next time. I have one and I love it. I just use antisneeze on the threads and use the impact. It takes all the fun out of it though.
