What color locktite did you guys use on your swaybar bolts. I am tired of them coming loose.

Did you still torque the bolts to spec of a bit tighter? I have had to over-torque the screws to keep them from coming out, but I think that must affect the sways since the bushing ends up tighter on the sway.

Spec torque should be OK. I don't think they'll back out with the loctite there.

I use it on some pretty powerful guns and the scope mount screws stay put.

Go with blue, and don't overtorque. If you're going to use the existing hardware, be sure to clean up the threads before you lay on the LocTite.

The sway bolts that came loose on mine were the ones that hold the brackets to the car. I can't even get a torque wrench in there. Loctite took care of that.

That's good advice. Cleaning parts, especially threads is important in any reassembly.
