Default Question on Rough Country 2.5" level Install

Hey, any help is appreciated here. I'm installing this kit on my 09 ram 1500, I'm at the point of installing the front strut extenders and It says to tighten the self sinching studs into the extensions using the 9/16" bit. The problem is the studs are round so I can't keep them from spinning when trying to tighten the nut. Anyone who has installed these before have any tips here, or am I missing something obvious? THanks for the help

I had the same problem with my RCX 6" lift. They're definitely a pain in the ass to try and get on there; a very poor design/way of doing it IMO. I think I ended up using vise grips on the bottom of the stud to help it stop spinning and then used an impact gun on the nut to tighten them up a bit.
