Default Rear Disc Knuckle Removal HELP!!!!!!

The SOB won't come off. There is a 18mm bolt on the bottom of the knuckle that goes all the way through. It's about 6" long. I can remove the nut, but the bolt wants nothing to do with moving. How the heck does someone get it out? There's got to be some secret. I spent 2 hours cranking at it and it wouldn't do jack. Trying to figure out how everyone else did this for the rear disc conversion. I know you could technically just remove the 4 10mm bolts for it... but that's not happening, they are rusted to all hell and do nothing but break so that's impossible.

You don't have to remove that bolt for the rear disc conversion. The knuckle stays, The hub goes. It's only held on by 4 10mm bolts and some rust.
