    This happened to me, impact gun didnt do it. I even went to my mechanic and we used the most powerful impact gun he has. still didnt work. you need to get the nut RED hot, the whole nut needs to be red then use a impact gun. After I did that it popped right off.

    I've had hell with one or two, and I've broken a breaker bar..

    One fool proof method that is dangerous as hell (do at your own risk, good chance of catching shrapnel) is to get a strong ass breaker bar, get a 4 foot cheater bar, have one person pretty much hang on the cheater bar with all their weight, then whack the crap out of the breaker bar with a 3-5 pound sledge (6 inches to a foot from the nut). Over and over. Its like an impact wrench on crack. That will break the nuts loose 99% of the time. But like I said, do it at your own risk.

    Also, if you go to a tire shop that works on big rigs, they can remove any nut on planet earth. Those people have gnarly breaker bars with 15 foot cheaters.

    i had the same problem the driveshaft would just not move at all (we impacted it,used a breaker bar, used a torch )and nothing worked so what we did was we removed the upper and lower ball joint and removed the outer tie rod end from the spindle and we took off the whole thing wheel spindle and drive shaft included and we just traded it at a junk yard for another spindle .worked for us

    Once again, did you unbend the circular ring thing? It's called the stake I guess? It's the ring around the nut with a little "v" chaped bend in it towards the nut, you need to bend that out.

    Make sure your Impact gun has some nuts to it too. My impact turns 450 ft lbs of torque, and i dont have a problem in the world, but not only does the ft lbs matter but your air volume and pressure. My air compressor pushes 250 psi's, so that helps it alot more. Good luck

    pushes 250 psi's...? alrighty then.. lol. its not just the max psi your tank can store but for how long it can maintain that high number when using various tools. bigger tank with more volume, and the larger compressor the better.
