Buy a front wheel stand you can push the front wheel into. I swear by Condor front wheel stands. Leave rear wheel on pavement. You should not need a pneumatic impact wrench. Use a Propane torch to slightly heat just the nut after flattening the tabs on the lock device under the nut. Use a 1/2 inch drive torque wrench and six sided socket. It should loosen. If you use an impact wrench, set at lowest setting, do a couple short bursts. If nut does not move, increase to next setting, do a few short bursts. Just until it begins to slightly move. Impact wrenches can easily damage the shaft threads or destroy them.
