Breaker bar, bl00dy hell, they don't have to be that tight do they. Have to admit to being a bit carefree when it comes to doing nuts/bolts up, I only have 3 levels, tight, very tight and effing tight.
Certainly does sound stripped, either the nut or the ball joint. Either way the only way you're going to get the nut off now is with a splitter or maybe an angle grinder....although it would be tricky to get a grinder in there with the overhang of the upright.
You could try some heat to melt the nylock, might be enough to get it off.
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
