Just had to purchase the lower and upper ball joints, and sway bar link on both sides. My question is how do I screw down the lower ball joint nut if the ball joint keeps turning? Is there a special tool i'm suppose to use? The sway bar link is doing the same. What am I missing?

i purchased a 1996 lincoln town car 6 years ago, recently my transmission started vibrating the car when shifting gears under acceleration, upon inspection of the fluid I've noticed the fluid is over full (I've never added any) and the fluid is very dark. I've been told the problem is the fluid and filter need changed and the pan needs cleaned. I want to have the filter and fluid changed but no service center will touch it. I have the skills to do this myself however, i've been cautioned not to because other issues may occur, (apparently the reason no service center wants to do it) Should I go ahead and do the service myself?
