Lemforder and Lock Tabs

When substituting new Lemforder lower ball joints, does one still use the original tab washers or some other locking scheme?

Mine came with new bolts pre-loaded with a Loctite compound. You can put it in with a drop of the red stuff if you’re worried. It will require heat to loosen.

As Erica, I just used medium Loktite.

Ok, thanks. I have a little extra length to use up with the grip of the bolts I ordered so I may throw in some split lock washers too. McMaster has a nice AN cad plated bolt that is 27/32" L with a 5/16" grip.


I use the lock tabs. I can’t see why Loctite wouldn’t be as good though.
