I have blue Loctite and, yes, it is in a red tube/bottle. Of course, the red stuff is in a red tube as well. Gotta read the label.

After mine fell of for the second time... I got new bolts.. Drilled a 1/8 or so hole through the bolt heads and wired all the boilts. Kinda like what they do on the airplanes... This way when they try to walk out they tighten each other..

Have not had the problem for about 8 months now... And the bolts do not loosen up over time like they used to.

I did, and rechecked it a week later to make sure everything was holding.

That happend to me last summer, passenger side caliper ,one bolt came loose and I was driving at 25mph and all it studden my front passeneger wheel locked up ans ended up weaking up my "alcoa mag" and my truck was only on the road for 5 MINUTES right after I got my truck serviced!! FORD took 100% blamed for it and issued me a new wheel, car rental, free oil change, and also there was NO damaged to the passenger front brakes!! Thank goodness the damage was not excess anymore than that!!

I don't know if any of you guys remembed that I made a post about this lasy year on gen-edge "Ford screwed up my Alcoa" last summer... anyways.. i'm sorry to hear for any one ever experanced in this incident and i know it's a scary thing to happend espically doing highway speed and having your wheel locked up!!
