Drag link flip bolt will not stay tight

Did a drag link flip from EVO. worst customer service I have ever experienced in my life. But non the less. The bolt which comes from beneath now since the flip will not stay tight. This is not a castle nut with a cotter oin its the stock bolt and they call for 55 lbs of torque. I know its torqued enough but it still has come loose ever trip i take over about 100 miles. I used blue loc tite. Still came loose any suggestions

stover type lock nut I believe is what ASE MasterTech is talking about.

Almost every suspension piece on a wrangler that isnt a castle nut is a stover type lock nut.

You can take them off and reuse them a few times, but they will wear out.
