Default Strut removal advice

I went to install my new 5100's today and got stopped dead when I couldn't remove the three nuts from the strut cap. The whole stud started to spin with the nut, which obviously means I couldn't remove the nuts. Frustrated doesn't begin to express how I feel.
Has anyone run into this? My current plan is to take it to work next weekend, where we have a complete fab shop, cut slots in the top of the studs for a flat-head screwdriver and hope that works.
If anyone has a better suggestion, I'm all ears.

On a separate note, I can't believe someone thought headless studs were the way to go in this instance.

On another, more positive note, my new 1-1/2" spacers really helped improve the look of my truck, IMHO.
