Planning an AEV 3.5 lift in the near future and I am curious if Locktite should be used throughout the install? I see mentions anti-seize in the instructions, but none of loctite.

All nuts/bolts will be torqued per the Appendix along with paint index marks to provide visual cues to loosening fasteners.

If Loctite should be used, which color?

Thanks!

Depends. If the nuts are self-locking, probably no need. I would think the instructions should include their recommendations. For this application blue locktite is what I'd use.

cool thing about blue locktite is it works as both locktite and anti-sieze. Hard to go wrong with using blue on suspension parts. keeps things on when you want and makes things removable when you want.

I always use blue locktite mixed with blood.
seems that is pretty common lol. I try and wear mechanics gloves but eventually they come off and the blood mixture starts lol.
