I am trying to replace the cv boot but am unable to break loose the axle nut. I have the correct socket but still not able to break loose. I sprayed the nut with a lubricant but no luck. Does anyone have a suggestion

A pipe that gives you a little more leverage on your rachet handle.

If it still won't budge, I have resorted to a BFH (hammer) but be careful and wear eye protection!

Get a longer breaker bar....(assuming you removed the cotter pin and nut cover)
