    Well, okay, but don't wait until the threaded holes get wallowed out and then will never hold tight.

    Mine got wallowed out. I used a combination of studs and bolts where i opened up the wallowed holes to the OD of the studs and used high strength thread locker. Mine get used all the time I drive my jeep as they are on the full float rear d44.

    Maybe why mine keep loosening? Might have started to wallow?
    I'll keep an eye on, until I can stud them!
    Thanks all.

    Well I take back my recommendation. Went to go repack bearings and all but 2-3 had sheered off inside hub on both sides. I have a full float rear, which I understand is more abusive on these....but it was disappointing.

    Looks like I am going the stud route as well..after I try to get the broken ends out.
