Track bar replacement issue

Hey guys, I have a 2006 wrangler unlimited 4.0 and got the death wobble so I replaced the front four ball joints and tie rods and got to the trackbar. Went in without a pinch, up until the very last part. I was tightening the castle nut on the top end of the track bar attaching to the bracket behind the pitman arm and the bolt kept going in circles with the nut and I'm unable to tighten it any more. Any help would be appreciated. I can't get the bolt even halfway on and the trackbar is brand new

Use a jack and a piece of wood to put pressure on the bottom, this will tighten the bolt in the joint & allow you to thread the nut on.
