Anyone have ideas on loosening a stubborn tie rod lock nut? I used all my arm strength and my wrench even flexed a bit from the force, but no luck.

I was thinking of suggestions on particular tools or tips. I'm using basic open end wrenches, but wonder if I should get a crow's foot that fits my impact wrench, or is that a waste? Or use a different kind of wrench?

Also, does anyone know the size of the lock nut? I can't remember. This is the nut that locks against the outer tie rod (not the castle nut). Thanks!
