Are you holding back on the back side of the bolt? The bolt will turn freely with the nut. You need like a cresent wrench or a channel lock to hold back on the bolt.

are you talking about the end links for the sway bar? if so, make sure you're using an allen wrench to hold the bolt in place. that's why it has that allen bolt impression in it.

also, instead of pushing, try hitting the wrench. impacts work much better than brute strength to get stuff like that off.
