after some heavy thumping with my big hammer I got left (passenger side ) bloody big nut loose on the front CV shaft on my Holden Barina .... but I dont seem to be able to get the right ( driver's side ) nut loose... anyone know if it's left handed thread ... I even used a 30 foot piece of steel pipe on the socket handle as a weight and thumped the handle with a bigger hammer.... but that bloody big nut hasn't moved any yet...

30 foot pipe was for weight... i thumped the socket handle about 2 inches up the handle .... socket handle was too springy to use the pipe on .... i think it would just bend or break ....
