1. Use a big breaker bar or strong impact gun, it'll come off.
2. Tight.
3. Using the old ones will be fine.

Yea, the nut is staked to the axle. Use a punch and a hammer to straighten that stake out. If you're getting new axles, they will come with new nuts. The proper torque is 134 lbft.

get a 32 metric socket, a 1/2 inch or bigger wrench, and a nice long steel pipe, and stand on it and maybe jump on it too.

get new axles for like 70 bones a peice and just swap those. You will be much happier and it will be a while before you have to worry about this. Axles are quick.

msc:2 what is the correct tork to tighten the nut down ?
slociv:2. Tight.
