That's what I did on one of my studs. Haven't had any problems with mine...but I'm the kind of guy that prefers the easy way.rattler50 said:I have my LT torn down and I'm replacing the transmission output shaft seal. Some of my exhaust studs came out instead of the nuts coming loose. Should I put the studs back and LocTite them or just put them back like they are and leave the nuts on? Just wondering.......
