stub axle threads - green locktite

Bolts would not go back in rear stub axle - theres 4 in total.
Needed to re-clean the threads with same size tap.

Bolts go in fine. ever so slight movement. Green locktite good enough or has to be red?

Could just flood it with green as got a few bottles of that left

Sorry, I think you may need to give us a bit more info, what car has it come from? What do the bolts hold together? What size / thread?. That kind of thing.

Are you concerned that the bolts are not a good fit or just about slackening due to vibration?

Cheers

. I always get worried when i see your pic for some reason.


yeah holds stub into the rear main axle with 4 bolts. wheel bearing then slides over it, then assemble the discs, brakes wheels etc


because re-cleaned threads, they are not a super super tight fit.
i need to torque em up to 50nm ish

but yeah i was thinking to secure against vibration.

never used anything on them tbh, sometimes they may have green stuff on them from the factory and I just reuse those bolt but most of the time there is nothing. Are they really going to vibrate loose? no.
