Steering Box Mount

I replaced a manual steering box with power steering and I'm having problems with the underside mounting bolts becoming loose over time.
The first time this happened it actually broke a bolt. This second time, I caught it before it became a big issue as I discovered it during replacement of the high pressure line.
I've torqued to spec, but have not used thread locker. I plan on removing the current bolts, applying thread locker, and then re-torqu.
Is this a common issue? If so, is there a common fix?

To me, RC is kind of the Harbor Freight of springs. Sometimes you get a good deal and sometimes you don't.

Can't say I've heard it being a common problem. Check the frame around the mounting holes to see if there are any cracks. If everything looks good, put a few drops of blue thread locker on the bolts like you were thinking.
