how to remove front shocks 2004 3500 ram

I just bought new shocks for my 2004 3500 4x4 and started looking at them and noticed it looks like you can only get to one side of the shock mount on
the bottom through a hole on the front side.so how do you hold the nut to keep it from spinning? and then again how to hold when putting it back together?

The nut has a flag on it, that prevents the nut from turning. You can see the end of it sticking down. It's also long enough so that by holding on to the end of the flag with your fingers, you can put the nut up into position and get the bolt started into it.
