Perhaps you have already done this but try smacking the head of the bolt.
Some strong shocks beyond that of the impact wrench may help break things

I'd recommend a 17 mm, 6 point, 3/4 drive socket, with breaker bar and 4 ft
of pipe, this would give you at least 600 ft-lbs of torque.
Or drive it down to a truck repair shop and see if they have a 3/4 or 1 inch
drive impact wrench.
