Removal of upper front strut bolts on 2002 Buick LeSabre

I'm trying to remove the front stuts on my 02 LeSabre. The top bolts appear to screw into a nut that is is round and flat. I have no way to hold the nut firmly as I turn the bolt and the whole assembly turns. Is there a special tool for gripping this nut and if so, how would I get it.

You have to use a spring compressor to take off the force from the strut spring. This is a very dangerous job if you don't know what you doing. The spring can tear you up when it let's go, if you do not have a spring compressor. DON"T DO THIS JOB IF YOU ARE NOT SURE ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!!!!!!!!!
