The only thing I put anti-seize on are bolts going into aluminum and spark plug threads.

I also put anti-seize on the exhaust bolts.

Everything else gets blue locktite.

It depends, what are you putting back together? Like on the tie-rod, wheel studs, and spark plugs, use antiseize. Bolts or nuts that can vibrate loose, Locktite.

I thought that locktight is for bolt and nuts that you almost never want to remove while antiseize is for those bolts that you never want to lock up like wheel bolts and such :2thumup:

There are different types of locktight, some are more permanent than others.

Another place I use the AntiSeize is on the bolts that hold the axle flange. When you break an axle these can be a bear to take out, I've seen a few break in my time. You also need to do this every time you strip and lug nut you have to take your axle out in order to repair this. You guys that are running in a lot of mud and water really should do this. I don't run much in this type of terrain and I still do it.

UPDATE: It has been about three years since the last frame off. When I put it back together, I replaced every nut and bolt I could with stainless to eliminate any future rust. Lesson learned: Stainless steel bolts fastened to grade 8 steel under heavy torque should be given a coat of antiseize to eliminate the burring. :banghead1:

If the bolt in question has no other means to 'Lock'- star washer, lock washer, lock nut- I would go with the blue/red loctite, both antiseize and loctite keep the moisture out fairly well, if you are going to use stainless to make it easily removed later, remember stainless is soft (grade 5 at best) and should not replace a grade 8 bolt. There IS grade 8 stainless if you want to open the wallet a little further, my axle flange bolts for the 14 were 11 bucks each bolt... :obsessed:

Go Here. I just had a mini class @ work by Loctite. THey have stuff you wouldn't believe. Check iout the site, read about the products, and you can figure out what you need where. There is blue, green, red, etc. threadlockers, as well as thier versions of antisieze.
