Can't help you with the noise, but the threaded shaft will spin. If you notice the top of the shaft can fit a hex wrench. That's how you hold it still from spinning. A normal torque wrench won't work with a hex wrench in place. I highly warn against turning the shaft with a torque wrench and holding the nut still. If you're not careful the shaft can crack on the threaded part.

You do know that nut gets torqued to only 65ft lbs.
