Since the original thread is closed..

2 years after doing my gear swap, and replacing the nuts with new ones, I decided to take my wheels off to clean and detail them. Should say I also marked the nut to the shaft. Anyways, passenger side didn't move at all. Driver side however, the mark moved about a 1/4 inch over a 2 year period. Had to re-tighten it. Anywho, check them nuts at least once a year !

I used 242 blue on mine and put them at 200ft-lb. Zero movement in 2 years. I check them every 3 months. :).

Perhaps I forgot to put Loctite on the left side :rolleyes:

my driver side loosens each event even with red loctite and ford's torque spec, so I check mine after each event like I check my oil. Wish they would have just reverse threaded the driver's side.
