    I'm trying to get all my ducks in a row before I attempt the install:

    I'll be swapping out the stock UCAs for some TC UCAs. I'll use a ball joint separator once the castle nut is loose, but my question refers to loosening the castle nut... what stops the ball joint stud from spinning as I try to remove the nut?

    It might be a stupid question, but I really don't know.
