Struts Question

I recently replaced all 4 struts... the front ones I have a problem with. When I tried to tighten the top nut that holds the plate to the top of the strut, I could not get it fully tightened. So now when I drive over bumps in the road, I hear a clanking noise coming from the front right side of the car. The left one does not seem to be making any noise... but I'm not 100% sure. Do any of you know a trick to tighten that top nut and at the same time keep the strut shaft from turning while I tighten the nut?

Well... I stopped by Harbor Freight and got a set of "Offset Wrenches" and was able to get the nuts tightened on those shock/strut mounts.
