those pillow balls are not a very good design, if possible I would try to see if another brand might work where Associated uses a lip behind the threads to allow you to use spacers for setting camber, you simply drive the pillow ball until it pinches the spacers flat with the arm:

i received today, the HSP 02152, looks super solid.

"there are 2 screws on top of the other therefore minimizing the loseness created by vibrations."

what do you mean by this?
Meaning that the 2 screws hold the same part, so therefore i presume the vibrations would have a lesser effect of "unscrewing".

I wouldn't use Loctite in that area ,especially if you got set screws!

For one thing ,the pillow ball is not going any where ,so your not going to
lose anything ,the ball cap in the knuckle will keep it in place!

Set screws are hard to get out an are easily stripped ,an I wouldn't recommend
Loctite there either.
I would just keep check on them every now & then to make sure they are tight!

You also have to make sure that you allow enough clearance for suspension
travel an not allow the drive axle to come out too far out of the diff cup!
If it ever does ,at speeds ,it can bind an snap a cup or destroy an axle!

Ive destroyed a super duty Mip axle that way in which p-ed me off because
they are very exsensive ,an hard to find for an AE Mgt.
Just bash it!....

no exception, always use thread lock on metal to metal fasteners, especially set screws!

If you have a need to remove a set screw later and your hex bit is starting to round out, then it's probably time to replace the bit on your wrench.

If the screw is still being stubborn, then I use a micro torch to heat the screw and melt the thread lock, then the screw should remove effortlessly without any risk of stripping out

A good set of tools means you'll have no problem getting set screws out. I would never go without thread locker on a pinion gear for instance. Very small screw with hardly any purchase area, and I still haven't stripped one out with my MIP drivers

That is why i chose the ZLD-222 (purple, light) threadlock between all 8 types i have. Strong enough to resist the vibration wick enuff to be unscrewed.

I'll go with a simple "yes".

Yes, you should use Loctite. Start with the blue stuff, and if they rattle loose, switch to the red stuff. Apply the red stuff sparingly so it can still be adjusted someday.

In my experience, he means "destroyed" instead of "adjusted." That red stuff is no joke.
One can lose things and one can loosen things. "Loose" is very rarely a verb; it is an adjective, and it describes the grasp some have on this concept.
