I'm trying to remove the axle nuts on my car so I can replace my ball joints, but the axle nuts are stuck. I tries heating it up and using a pipe for leverage, but I didn't work and I jacked up my breaker bar. Any ideas on what to do?

Try soaking it with a good penetrating fluid and let it sit over night. If that doesn't work, you may have to bring it to a shop so that they can use oxy-acet. Torches and a high tq impact gun.
