Sway Bar Link Question

So I'm attempting to replace the sway bar links on my jeep. They are stock links, nothing special. It should have been a quick easy fix, but as always, it didn't work out that way. The top part of the link (the piece that actually bolts to the sway bar) is a threaded "bolt-like" object attached to a rubber joint on the rest of the link. The problem I am having is whenever I try to put the nut onto this piece, the entire "bolt" just spins. I can't figure out how to stop it from spinning. Am i doing something wrong? lol

The bottom part of the link has the head for another wrench on the other side. the top is just a threaded rod that a nut goes on. I don't have a pic at the moment, but i'll try and get one tomorrow.

It's pretty similar. That is the problem area, however it's no longer a problem. I managed to get the nut on without it spinning. Just parked the jeep on a slant so there was some tension on the sway bar and that did the trick. Thanks for the advice guys.
