Question about 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
I cant get the nut off the axle that holds the axle snug to the hub iv sprayed it whith oil iv tried an impact gun in both directions and it wont break loose
Get a strong socket and a log breaker bar. I have a 4 foot breaker bar that hold 3/4 drive sockets. Mine was tight also but it came loose with that bar. The only other suggestion would be to heat it up quickly with a torch and go for it.

Tips for a great answer:
Tighten the spindle nut to 149 ft-lbs to seat the bearing then
. rotate the axle 5 to 10 times to seat the hub bearing, then
tighten the spindle nut to a final torque of 263 ft-lbs I would just use a good impact gun to get it there.
