Diff cover bolts - loctite or anti-seize?

Do the front & rear differential cover bolts go back in with loctite or anti-seize or nothing?

How about the fill plugs?

Thanks!

I don't think anti-sieze would hurt anything on the fill plugs.

I never usually use anything on the bolts

I never use anything either. By the time you get the sealer on and around the bolt holes, the sealer should actually hold the bolts in place. You MIGHT want to put some thread sealer or teflon tape on the fill plug as it is pipe thread.

1 for anti seize on the fill plug
1 for teflon tape on the fill plug
1 for nothing on the fill plug

Awesome !! lol

I bet there's probably nothing on there right now but I like the teflon tape idea. So on to part 2 of my recent low level overhaul....
