    So you tried gripping the bar itself with the vice grips, and when you try to loosen the nut, the vice grips slip and the bar still turns? Like in this pic I'm attaching here?

    wd-40 is definitely a good idea

    And this is a dumb question but you are turning the nut counter-clockwise, right? lol

    Did you cut off the nut yet?

    So I cut the axle nut with an angle grinder corner by corner until I could hammer the bar out. Now everything is good, and just waiting on my ordered parts.

    BTW if the adjuster block is chewed, you're more than likely going to have to do this.

    When assembled correctly - with the flat correctly lined up in the adjuster block so that the axle properly slides all the way in before tightening the axle nut - the adjuster block will never get chewed up like that in the first place.

    Good.

    Donít over torque it when you put it back together.

    . . . and no hammer.
