Hi Kurt, thanks for your thoughts.

I can get Grade 8 nylocs, so I am not concerned about the nut's strength. I can't re-use the originals as I had to destroy some that were corroded to the bolt, and those I didn't ruin look as though they have deformed on removal and won't lock again. There were no split washers fitted, just flat washers and the metal lock nuts. If I could easily get new all-metal locknuts I's happily fit them, but it seems that nylocs are very commonly used on suspensions components.

Your tip to use some loctite is a good one though, I will do that.

Thanks, Jim
