Good tip on the blue loctite for trans bolt. I haven't looked at it yet so it's nice to get the tips to cut down on thinking time once I'm under there.

I'm not sure on the torque value. I just made sure they were tight enough. But i've been a tech for years and I know what feels right to me. I can try and look it up though, I'll see if alldata has any info on 2012+ yet.

Should be about 80 ft/lbs on the two large bolts.

I did this a couple weeks ago, no loctite on mine going back in. I am nervous now lol.

If they're torqued you should be fine lol. I just added it for extra security.

Just finished the install today and it definitely tightens everything up better. The underbody bolt with the red loctite was sort of a pita to remove. I may end up purchasing a new bolt for piece of mind.

A new bolt is not necessary to use. As long as you put it on correctly and got it tight (around 80 ft/lbs) you will be fine.
