    Don't know if this is the right subforum for your question, but I'd be interested as well since my spidertrax spacers are in the mail to me :)

    Just gettin started!
    I have read that some recommend the use of blue loctite on there spidertrax spacers when installing.

    I personally purchased a set of All-Pro spacers and when I picked them up i asked this same question. They did not recommend the use of loctite with there spacers. They did however recommend re-torquing them after 10 miles and to recheck them every 10 miles until re-torquing was not needed. I found that on my particular application there wasn't a need to re-torque as they hadn't loosened at all.

    I still check them when rotating tires and still havn't found the need to re-torque.

    Let's add a dumb question: How do you break the loctite? I thought that stuff was forever (as in, f'ing hard to undo).
    Also, I guess I'll have to get a torque wrench when my spacers come in Tuesday.

    18" breaker bar does the trick. Locktite holds the nut in place but will not permanently weld it to the stud.
