Stearing stem bolt

I had a front end wreck a while back. I'm finally getting around to tearing the bike apart and re- building it. The upper and lower tripples are both warped so im taking the front end apart. I bought the special tool to remove that bolt... but it is NOT moving... im thinking perhaps the bolt was pulled down from the accident and now cross threaded. Any tips or ideas on how to get that damn thing out ?

looking at next years options

Did you undo the tabs on the lock washer before attempting to undo the nut?
