I want to do a brake job on my 2002 S10 2 wheel drive pickup but I cannot get the front lug nuts loose. I've got a big 2 stage compressor and impact and I've tried a breaker bar. Neither budges them. I could try a pipe on the breaker bar for leverage but I'm afraid I'll snap off lugs. Am I missing something?

Is penetrating oil (P B Blaster) OK instead of WD-40? That is a 1/2 inch breaker. Smack the end of the nut?

I wanted to make sure they aren't left hand tightening nuts (backwards). I wouldn't think so.

I have good news and bad news. I forgot about PSI. I had it at 90 so I turned it up to 160 and they broke free. 9 of them anyway. One broke the socket then rounded off using a second socket. Now what do I do to get that one off? I think there is some kind of socket for that. I need to research it.
