Default Help! Lower Control arm removal?

I'm trying to remove the lower control arm on my 2007 Ram 2500 Hemi. The nut towards the front of the truck will not come off. Is there a trick that I need to remove it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

make sure the nut on the inside isn't spinning! if it's not moving at all, spray the crap out of it with penetrating oil.

I made sure to spray all of the nuts last night, and I've been spraying penetrating oil on it like crazy. I just borrowed a bigger impact gun. Hopefully it works.

Alright! Got the nut off. Sprayed the crap out of it with penetrating oil and freeze off. The bigger impact gun was the key though.
