Default Hub Nut

Like a dummy, I took my hub assembly off while attached to the CV joint. Now I want to replace the CV joint but I can't get the hub nut off. With it being all apart, it's not working. I just can't get the hub nut loose. Any suggestions.
97 4WD Blazer.

Thanks

Engage the 4WD and leave the other front tires on the ground, it should keep the CV from turning so that you can break the nut loose.

Put it all back together so you can get the tire on put the truck on the ground. Unless you have one hell of a impact that is gonna be about the only way.


You can also do that but just rember the truck has to be running the whole time you are doing this because vacume engages the front diff.

thanks for the advise. I took the assembly to a friend of mine who has an impact wrench and it came of in 15 seconds. What a relief!!

Thanks
