ok! I have only used it on the shock bolts and the body bolts when I lifted the body to cut off the old shock nuts.

Antiseize was actually developed for those conditions. Used properly, the right antiseize for the application is the right stuff to keep things from seizing up where corrosion is an issue. Not all antiseize compounds have metallic particles added. http://catalog.antiseize.com/categor...ds&plpver=1001

I'm sure if some doesn't have metal it would be fine. We stopped using it years ago. Have never had a problem with the White grease in a tub, not can on nuts and bolts. Just my experience in the shop..

I use Permatex, and I've never had any issues getting bolts I've used it on back out when necessary.

Permatex (and Locktite) is fine for some hardware but I sure wouldn't use it everywhere... especially places where antiseize is typically recommended like tie rod ends, t-case skidplate bolts, wheel studs, etc.

Now come on, I had already given you the fix for that in the second link I provided for you back in this earlier post for you...

You might also consider getting an electic impact. No need for a bigger compressor then. One of the best tools I have ever bought.

Yes you did, maybd you did an edit and added those links but I think I must have already read the post before you added them because I didn't see those links before. That great idea and I'm gonna do that as soon as I get back to the house. I had to make a run down to the Home Depot, real quick.

Do those pack the same punch?

Only the best quality electric impact wrenches like from Milwaukee, Snap-On, etc. do. The cheap electric impact wrenches like from Harbor Freight Tools don't.

Jerry, thanks for those links. It worked out great, came off like butter. The new Ujoint is on and the Keep is up and running great. I almost got all the issues done on it and I'm happy with my purchase.
