I was able to remove the 4 lugs. Any tricks or tips on this 1.5" center nut so I can replace the live axles? Thanks!!!

same thing actually

penetrating oil, patience, gentle application of heat
and/or a few taps with a hammer to start cracks in the brittle rust..
more penetrating oil and more patience
and a few uggaduggas later it'll be removed.

Jokes about german sausage are the wurst.

Small propane torch or oxygen fuel will help or a breaker bar with a cheaper pipe on that. Just need yo hold it steady. PB blaster or the like will help loosen it up. An impact gun (air or electric) will help.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.
