What is the proper way to torque tie rod end ball joints? Socket on a torque wrench doesn’t work because you need to hold the top of the stud with a wrench to prevent it from spinning.

I use a crows foot socket from Harbor Freight on the end of a Harbor Freight torque wrench. Hasn't fallen apart yet (yet being the operative word, but I have put 24,000 miles on them)
