we are talking about the 4 bolts that hold the strut to the hub ?

i would use neither to be honest, just wire brush the crud of the bolts, copper slip and tighten to correct setting. job done
that way of you have to dismantle in the future you will find it will come apart as intended and the bolts wont be corroded

yes correct.
Ok I'll take your advice, no loctite then. I have already wire brushed them spotless and tightened them up but not up to 4kg-m yet. That is this weekends job to torque up all bolts and check.

4-4.7 kg-m seems a bit tight considering the small thread area but I guess AR know what they designed!:lol:

last thing I want to do is strip them again. They have already been repaired costing me 40 quid.
