I am in the middle of changing my brakes and I have the 32mm socket for the spindle but the darn thing wont budge!
I have lifted the passenger side of the truck up off the jack stand trying so hard!

How did you do it?

Why are you messing with spindle for a brake job? Are you changing out the hub as well?

Front or rear, changing rotors? Please add some detail. If it's rear there's parking brakes inside the rotor that might be slowing you down.

32mm is the axle nut, not the spindle. To remove the front rotors, you need to remove the caliper bracket a/k/a torque member which requires a 21 mm socket, a breaker bar, and probably best practice is to heat it up to release the thread locker. You do not need to remove any 32 mm nut to change the brake rotors or pads. To remove the rear rotors, you make sure the parking brake is off, remove the caliper and pull off the rotor.
