    The axle nut is stuck on my 95 integra. I have a electric impact and have tried applying heat but it wont budge. Any other suggestions?

    Make sure you are using a very rugged breaker bar, slip a 3 foot cheater bar over the end of it, and the nut will come right off.

    also leave the rim on the car and keep it on the ground just to break it loose

    probably a stupid question but did you remember to straighten out the dent that keeps it locked in place?

    Thanks for the replies guys. I ended up soaking it in pb blaster before work and then when I came home I gave it one more try with the impact and it came off. Go figure
