I wouldn't give up so easily. Get someone to help you if you aren't able to do it yourself. How about them Bay Area Corolla guys?

Use a breaker bar, it lengthens the handle of your socket wrench giving you more leverage. Make sure you torque the nuts properly after it's installed. It's not difficult, you just need the correct tools.

yep use a breaker bar. i use it on most things when it wont budge. if youre gonna ask someone there to help, make sure you bring your own tools. usually we dont carry anything to the meets unless its a specified install meet.

i used a breaker bar along with a cheater pipe long enough so that i could practically loosen the bolt from the side of the car. just make sure you are turning the bolt in the right direction.
