Upper ball joint spinning

314 5
Trying to change upper ball joint on 1970 mustang. But when putting the ball joint on and trying to tighten to specs and bolt was spinning and I was not paying attention and ripped the boot. Never had this happen before - bad ball joint? Any advice appreciated.

thanks

Try putting some weight on the tire/spindle then tighten.
