Re-tightenng Currie control arm bolts?
Well I'm just finishing up my rear upper perch relocation and getting ready to install my new OME 4" coils. I had removed the rear axle to make it easier to do both the welding on the inner side of the upper perches and to weld on a trackbar bracket brace onto the axle housing. When I go to re-install the Currie control arms to the axle, do I need to use red locktite on the Currie bolts? The Currie bolts are using the type of nut that "locks" itself by deforming slightly...I believe??? So would these types of nuts require locktite when being reused?
I'm still on my factory bolts and have had most of the arms off and quite a few times. For some reason I chose the control arm bolts as the ones I never put thread locker on. If I was going to use any it would be blue, but I don't imagine I'd ever need any seeing as I have never had one come loose. Hope someone else chimes in.
I have taken my control arms on and off a few times,. The one bolt on the bottom front passenger side came loose. I use loc tite on it now and no problems since.
