Any tricks to remove the axle hub nut? Whats the best way to cut it off?
Used a 3 ft. breaker bar and jumped on it (I'm 290 lbs), and tried to use a 300 ft/lb hammer wrench and neither budged it. I DID get the other one off fairly easily (the drivers side).
I soaked it in PB Blaster for 2 days and stuff too- NOTHING. I also tried to tighten it and then untighten it (and back and foreth with the hammer wrench since sometimes "tightening" it can break it loose- nothing)
So In lou of trying to find someone that has a 400 or 450 ft/lb hammer wrench, since I'm not going to go buy one just for this when I already have a 300 which has served me well in everything I've ever done, Does anyone have any suggestions before I try cutting it off?
Is it common place to need more than 300 ft/lb to get those off? They are only torque specced to 170?
If I have to cut it off, whats the best way to do it, and does anyone know where you can buy a new one / what its officially called from the dealer? (I checked autozone, Oreilly, and some local places- noone has the same one, but Oreilly has a different one they said will work (doesnt use the cotter pin)
