    I find side cutting pliers are very useful for dealing with split pins.
    A stand to put under the front hub when doing up and undoing the 32mm nut is very useful.
    Generally speaking, the breaker bar needs to be fairly long to reach the required torque.
    I think thats all you need.

    Regarding "What else is needed?"
    Maybe someone to put their hoof on the brake pedal whilst you're undoing and refitting the driveshaft nut?
    Both of my children supplemented their pocket money with such chores...

    p.s. A 3/4" drive breaker bar and socket are a worthwhile investment when you're dealing with 35 to 40 kgf.m torque.

    Do you know why it needs 250 to 290 foot pounds of torque to tighten it ?

    Thanks

    Are you just replacing the outer drive shaft bellows? You should be able to do that without removing the wheel nut. From memory, I just unbolted the inner driveshaft from the disc brake, slide it off the outer shaft, removed the Ligarex clip and the old bellows, cleaned the hub, used new grease (usually comes with the bellows), attach a new Ligarex clip if you are ambidextrous and can work out how Ligarex works or cheat as I do and use a screw clip. When done, connect the outer driveshaft to the inner one, maybe replacing the central bellows and even the inner bellows while you are up to your elbows in grease.

    If all else fails, read the Haynes Workshop Manual, Chapter 8, Front Axle and Front Suspension, page 138, section 11 - Driveshaft Bellows - renewal (outboard joint).

    Never been called that before, but can live with it...
    .
    Anyways, a 0.5m long bar with my full weight (80kg) on it seems to have worked OK for the 39 years that I've been working on these little contraptions.
    The specified torque for the bush nuts which retains the wheel bearings is identical, as is that for the rear hub nuts.
