Got it off myself after 4 tire shops and 3 different pep boys would not do it.
I got an impact socket, nice and strong, and grabbed my new reversable torque wrench, set it to a good tight setting, and one simple pull and that puppy gave and came loose.
I was able to inspect my brakes, and its time for new pads.
While I was there, I figured I would try to see if I could install my springs, and after about an hour of trying, I decided it wasn't worth it, so I put everything back and hand torqued the wheels to factory specs.
I feel much better now.
