Question Spindle nut won't break loose

Hey guys,

Trying to replace all my front in and start my superlift install but can't seem to get the spindle-to axle nut off truck. It's a tad rusty. From what I've researched and read it's a 1 1/4" socket. I've also read something about a special axle socket? I've tried beating the hell out of it with happier and screw driver, then breaker bar and impact wrench. And yes I've used pb blaster a ton as well. What could I be doing wrong? Need help! Thx
