I`m fairly certain the front and rear are the same part. It`s quite easy to fit a new stud, just bore out the original hole, cut a piece of threaded studding (M8 IIRC) to length and cement in with JB Weld/chemical metal etc. Just make sure there`s no excess material around the bottom of the stud to prevent overrider sitting flush on the bumper.
