Default Swaybar Link Problems

I installed new front links on my tj and the nut is just spinning with the threaded piece. Is there any tricks to make it not spin. I tried using a pair on vicegrips but it can only grab to a certain point.

A pry bar from the frame to the sway bar pushing the taper together tight should do it as long as you're using OE type of links. You are talking about on the bar, not the diff end yes?

Moog and some other brands have wrench flats on the back side. Or use an impact to spin it quicker than the stud.
