Soak them in penetrating fluid NOW, and let it soak in. That helps. Whenever I do annoying jobs like this, I start soaking the bolts/threads every day, for a few days in advance. Makes a big difference.

Or hit the flange with heat.

I wonder if the electric impact had/has more breaking torque than the air impact you're using? (not doubting your ability or choice, just running through a mental checklist of things to try...)


Thanks for the link to the brakes.

Air definitely has more torque it's over 1000 I did get one out with the air but the other 11 wouldn't budge

Here is my daily update. Today is the first day in awhile I've seen this truck on all fours. I got the DS suspension on and all wiring complete. Air horn sounds bad *** and light bar works great. I tried to bleed RP caliper and the bleader valve just decided it did not want to comply. It snapped right off. So I pumped as much air out as possible and drove a screw into the hole. After bleeding all others I tested for pressure and felt comfortable enough to drive 10 miles to get a new caliper. Tomorrow I will install new caliper, change oil and a good top down wash and wax. I took measurements of ride height immediately after wheels hit ground. Ride quality is better then the day I bought it. Rear sway is almost all gone, very stiff over bumps. Just feels great overall. I would recommend this setup to anyone. I will update again tomorrow. And I will also add photos after truck settles for a week. Photos attached are as follows.
DS suspension installed
PS rear gap
PS measurements 38.5"
Relay panel
Knuconcepts terminals
Supplemental body ground
Light bar

Very nice thread. Thanks for sharing with pictures also.

So, how much lift did you gain in the front and rears?

Im glad you liked it. I did nothing to the front it sits at same height. Up to today I'm almost 4" higher in rear then when started (with blown air shocks). I've been waiting for rear to settle, it hasn't changed one bit still 38.5"

I also purchased an air hammer so I'll give the hubs another go next weekend.

Good luck.

I'm about to attempt to replace my front wheel bearings/hubs, and then swap in all new rotors/pads front & rear.

Same to you sir. Did you get the same rotors/pads that I did?

I purchased this Front & Rear kit from Amazon since their website was having issues.

Max Brakes Front & Rear Premium Brake Kit [ OE Series Rotors + Ceramic Pads ] KT038643 Fits: 2005-2006 Infiniti QX56 Nissan Armada | 2005-2007 Titan

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I ended up getting the first wheel bearing out, and replaced no problem.

As I was putting on the new pads/rotors a neighbor up the road, who I hadn't met before, rolled by in a Titan, and asked me if I was doing the bearings! lol. He stopped and shot the breeze with me for a bit, and even ran home to let me borrow two long bolts to use as "pushers" to pop out the remaining hub.

While doing the passenger side I discovered that the caliper was badly worn out, and the seals were starting to seep, so I called up a buddy who gave me a ride to Autozone to buy a new caliper. Once all the new parts were back together I realized it was well into Happy Hour, so I called it a day.

Today, my gf did me a big favor, and pressed the brake pedal to help me bleed the brakes. I just got back from a test drive, and the brakes seem to work... yay.

I only took one picture:
