Sure is. It is referred to as a spindle nut socket or axle nut socket. You need a 36mm socket. Autozone PN 27054, Advance Auto PN AC824/W154, Napa has a deep 36mm socket with a 1/2" drive, but I do not know if it is deep enough.

Return the socket you bought. See if the auto stores have loaner sockets that will fit. The stores here have a loaner set of deep sockets for axle nuts.

You can look up either of the two PNs I listed. Without looking back at them myself, I would say you shouldn't spend more than $20 on one. Free if you do the loaner tool program. I like having tools though.

Long breaker bar, piece of pipe, and the wheel on the ground.
