You need a large socket to remove it. You can buy them in sets from Sears/Craftsman or Autozone can rent you the socket for free.

Lisle Tool Company also makes the right socket for taking the nut off.

Should be a 30 mm socket on this era GM FWD.

That large nut can get pretty tight, it might help to loosely bolt the wheel back on and lower it to the ground to break that axle nut loose

Good luck,
