Can't get bent tie rod off.

Is there a trick to this?

I am trying to replace my bent tie rods, but I cant get the ends off of the bike. I pulled the little pins out, but when i try to get the nut off of the end where it mounts to the a arm, it just spins, and there is nothing for me to grab on the underside to keep it from spinning. is there something under the bushing? this seemed like it was gonna be so simple, and I'm stuck right off the bat.

well it really was simple. I was just impatient. There is a little washer right on the under side of the mount with flat sides that u hold in place with a wrench. I tried that right away, but it didn't appear to be doing anything after a couple turns so i thought I was wrong, and came in and made this post, but yeah it really was easy. next is replacing the bent steering shaft.
