I have a 97 mazda protege lx and .I've used an allen wrench to hold the stud, but it only goes so far. The bolts will tighten to a certain extent, but then they get so tight that I actually stripped the allen wrench hole in the center of the stud.

Are you sure that isn't as far as they should be? Are you cross threading?
