There are axel nuts on the outsides. The axels are also sometimes sized and will take some force to pop loose. If you're trying to remove the axel stubs on the insides you will need to apply pressure with a pry bar while simultaneously hitting them out with a hammer.

Apply some heat, and take your time you never want to strip bolts.

also u can try some penetrating lube like PBblaster
Lol goodluck. I'll let you pb blast that axel nut all day. :whistle:

dont forget if you don't have an impact available breaker bars work well along with a pipe on a ratchet.

Trick on the axle nut is to use a punch to open up the part of the nut that is peened over...remove the center cap on the wheel and break the nut loose BEFORE you put the car up on the jackstands...breaker bar and big socket works well...i usually end up standing on the breaker bar..works every time.
