help near boulder colorado....

I'm looking for anyone in the boulder area to assist in the removal of my lug nuts.... may seem crazy but they will not come off... I have placed a jack under a 4 way while standing on the opposite side and all it did was twist the 4 way. I even stoped by the local garage and their impact hadnothing on them. I have no idea what the shop in fl used to tighten these things.... I am not from the area and need to swap out the rear axles, so if anyone would be able to give me a hand it would be appreciated......
thanks in advance

Use a 27mm impact socket, and 18" breaker bar, and a 4 foot length of lead pipe.

Be careful not to snap a stud. A long pipe on a heavy breaker bar may just do the trick or is may snap a stud.
Some people are so heavenly minded that they are NO EARTHLY GOOD!

I wouldnt worry too much about snapping studs. They can be replaced. Its just that next time the lugs go back on you'll want to use some anti-sieze.
