Think about getting an electric impact gun. It will make that job easy and also good for a lot of other jobs too. Imo, its well worth the investment if you do your own wrenching which it seems you do, and don't want to get into the expense of air.

I'm suffering from a similar problem. Except I can't seem to keep the axle from spinning. Tried breaking it loose with the brakes applied and I tried using a 2x4 between a wheel stud and the ground. With a long breaker bar it lifts the car off the jackstand when I wedged the 2x4 to the ground and a stud. Any suggestions?
