Yes, no problem. I bought the kit from a (very) well respected supplier on eBay that manufacture lots of their own driveshafts and joints which are generally very well rated.

The stretch CV gaitor kit was 5.49 delivered:

My drive shaft was in REALLY tight. I was worried that it may be rusted in at first as the hammer had NO effect. But the proper tool did the job. This is not the exact one I have, but almost identical (min has a few more accessories than this one):

Yes, any decent meaty impact gun should get that nut off. You can't really tighten stuff effectively to 420nm by hand as that's a lot!!! Unless you're hanging off of the end of a 1.5 meter bar (nice and safe of course!)
