|Springsblueyj||Thanks for the tip ballistx. I will have to try that next time I have a stubborn bolt or nut. Soaking it and the 4 foot pipe did the trick.|

Farmer's impact wrench
Set it up so you can pound on the nut as you are applying pressure. That is the same result as an impact wrench. It doesn't take a tremdous amount of impact, just a moderate blow with a 3lb or 2lb hammer against what would be the end of the bolt, but covered up by the socket, etc.
Can do the same thing with a screwdriver or torx by striking the end of the handle when applying pressure to turn. Best not to miss and hit the hand though. That causes other effects.

|Springsblueyj||Thanks everyone! I have a buddy bringing me a bigger pipe. Hopefully that and soaking it all night will do the trick.|

|MellowYellow89YJ||I tried everything on mine... Long breaker, impact gun, penetrating lube, heat, and lots of creative speach. I ended up cutting it and splitting it, being very careful to not get into the threads.|

|Springsblueyj||I have been using about a 2 foot piece of pipe and my breaker bar with no luck.|

I needed a good breaker bar and a 3' length of pipe. I first did this to my 1/2" ratchet before buying a breaker bar though.... The nut is torqued to 175ftlb

Axle nut help.
I'm trying to get the axle nut off of my front dana 30 diff. I can't seem to get it loose. I tried using a pry bar, even my weight would not break it free. I am soaking it over night. My questions, am I risking snapping something off? Is it cross threaded? any ideas to help get it off?? Thanks.
