Default Strut advice


Looking for some advice regarding front struts on a 1982 volvo 244.

Front driver side strut is making a clunking sound - no idea when they were last refreshed, likely requires doing.

I pulled off the plastic caps and the rubbers look ok. However the nut on the drivers side is not tight - passenger side is fine and doesn't clunk.

I tried to tighten that nut but it will not, just spins around. There is little resistance.

What am I overlooking here? Do i need to jack the wheel up before attempting to tighten or something?
