Default How to loosen the castle nut on the steering ball joint - 97 TXT

Sorry for the noob question but is the first time I try to take this apart

The steering riser from my lift kit broke, I have yet to order a new one. But today I started taking it apart so is easier when the new one comes. (and I was bored :)

Here is the problem, I removed the cotter pin but cannot unscrew the the castle nut, the whole thing just spins and I have to idea where to "grab" it from so I can remove the nut..

Now the pics..
From the Diagram I'm trying to separate The tie rod #7 and the Castle nut #10

The second one is the pic of the my cart, you can see how the steering riser got broken and that is the piece I want to separate, but when I want to remove the castle nut the whole thing turns


Cart is an EzGo TXT 97
Lift Kit is unknown drop axle (looks like a Jacks's Lift)

This from youtube might be of help.

An impact wrench works for me. You can also use the "pickle fork" to put froce on the ball joint to help hold it to remove the castle nut.

Thanks for the video... he just took them off :(

But in my case the whole castle nut and ball joint just rotates.. and I do not see anywhere to hold it from.
