Yes, for the most part; I’ve read this entire thread. When I removed my body mount bolts, I didn’t even know about this problem. The majority of people using impacts didn’t break bolts. I did say majority; not everyone was so lucky.Interesting, Did you read this entire thread ? I only ask because that’s the opposite of what most have been saying.
It’s simple physics; a body in motion stays in motion. Once someone using a breaker bar stops and restarts multiple times you’re applying additional torque until you exceed the bolts torsional strength. When you start and stop you’re causing the threads to excessively bind up; which is exactly the purpose of Loctite. As I also stated constant rotational motion using an impact under load will create heat and soften the red Loctite.
I’m not advocating FCA’s use of red Loctite; which was not the best idea; I wire wheeled on a bench grinder all of the red Loctite off replaced with blue when re-installing.
