I would replace every locknut that was used more than once or twice.

I also put Red Locktite between the upper ball joint and upper A-arm bracket.

I also put on Blue locktite on the Spindle bracket (with 2 or 3 holes)

I put blue locktite on the UCA to chassis bolts.

The rest I just torqued down as needed without additives.

I don't use loctite anywhere on the suspension.But I use either factory type or nylock nuts on everything.

I really like safety wire. It's used extensively in my line of work. Not sure how much it will be incorperated into my initial build, but it'll end up with some before it is over.

One thing I have noticed with my kit is the lack of proper thread protrusion through nuts.
The 3 link lower shock mount bolts are too short. Front upper shock mounts are as well.
