when i do my wheel bearings in my 94 ( which is often, ctd and large offset wheels arent a good combo) I use a 9/16" socket... a long 1/2" extension... and i beat on the bolts with a 5lb hammer. works like a charm everytime! Just make sure you have enough thread in the wheel bearing so that you dont damage the threads. You can give your friend a beer and convince him to hold the extension for you! i did that once!
