Question Breaks and CV shaft nut removal

Whats up everybody. I'm new here, but have been driving honda's for 8 years or so. So I already have all new break parts, front and rear. So me and a buddy of mine start tearing into the driver side....we get to the point where the nut on the end of the CV shaft needs to come off...I or we, have been trying to get this stupid thing off for a good half hour now! any help?? This nut isn't reversed thread or anything, right??? we Also, where and what would be the best brand/place to get all new front ends stuff....especially bushings. my bushings are bad. Thank you so much for any info given!

CV axle does not need to come off for brake repairs, but may for lower arm bushing replacements.

Axle nut is very tight and generally requires a good strong 1/2" air impact (500+ ft-lbs), or 1/2" x 18" breaker bar, cheater pipe (3-4 ft) to gain additional leverage to break the axle nut. Search for youtube videos on the subject. Some good how-to examples are there.

good luck

Well, maybe your Honda is different. This one, you have to take this plate off(plate with the lugs on it, right on the side of the actual caliper) and that plate will not part with the CV shaft now that I have got the nut off.
