We have installed stern mounts into a 1.8T, but we cannot seem to get the top bolts for the mounts to tighten down. They feel like they just spin and spin. Has anyone encountered/fixed this?

b/c the lower and upper work together to stop each other so they can be tightened... pull the top stud through as far as you can, that should also lock it enough to turn it.

i had to half way tighten the bottoms to pull the tops through enough to get them to lock inside. its a pain in the dick.

That sounds worst than a pain in the ass.
