Front Control arm removal

I'm removing my front upper control arm to replace a bad bushing and the stud nut on the ball joint is just spinning the bearing. Is there someway to secure the spindle/bearing so that the nut can be removed?

Never mind; figured it out. The inside of the bolt is a 5mm allen head. [/idiot]
