Sway Bar link install help!

Hi everyone, I was recently looking under my car and noticed the the sway bar link totally dismantled and the ball was not attached into the socket anymore. I went to a local auto parts store and bought a replacement, and had everything go OK until I tried to screw the nut into the top to fasten the link. When i was screwing the nut, it seems that the nut was stuck and it not turns with the ball inside the socket. I was wondering if anyone's got any help for me so I can tighten this nut so it stops spinning with the ball.

Theres a link to a part below if anyone can help me with some installation tips.

Is what you're saying-when trying to tighten the nut, the ball is turning? Do the install and let the Jeep set on a loaded suspension, on all for wheels no jacks. That will place pressure on the ball and you'll be able to tighten the nut. Air rachet helps also.

Ask for 94 or 95 endlinks, they have replaceable bushings, im sure they would still fit.

some JKS discos cost like $20 more then dealer for 2 replacements..
anyway i would get some lock tight, put it on, and hit it with a impact gun, but just put the nut bearly on (so the treads start) that way when you hit it iwht the gun, the nut has a running start
