rear axle nut

damn, people aren't kidding when they say that nut is tight.. it's much tighter this time than it was the last time i had it off...

i got a 4 foot iron bar on there and it didn't budge..

I'd drive the car to a shop to have it loosened, but my new dme relay isn't here yet..

boo to owning a stubborn car..

Slip a steal pipe on over your breakerbar. Then have it set up so you can unjack your car on to pipe.. slowly and from good cover. Huge torque... Lefty loosey.

What JivenJim is trying to say is, use a huge cheater on the nut, jack up your car and position the breaker bar so that as you lower the car it loosens/breaks the nut free.

Are you swearing in the right language?

This is what it took to get the axle nut off on my friends '89.

6' pipe extension and you stand on it. 6' x 160lb= 960ft-lb. Worked for me. OSHA is reviewing....

Hey duck,
Did you have a 3/4 drive on that 7 ft bar. I snaped my 1/2 drive adapter doing it that way. I guess I should of bought the pro grade socket set.

As an alternative, I marked the spring plate position and took my whole trailing arms in to a buddies shop to do my last set of bearing. Best $150 I spent. Easy to do with hydrolic press and impact hammer (like bazar had)

Jim, i was using a 1/2 inch driver socket. The breaker bar looked like it was going to shatter when i applied full force onto it.
