    Loctite for NRS pivot bolts?

    Anything wrong with Loctite on pivot bolts? I finally found the source of the noise I asked about here awhile back - the pivot bolt closest to the derailleur slowly comes a little loose, like 1/8 turn over 100 miles. I thought I might back the bolt out 1/4 inch, put a little blue Loctite on the female threads, and tighten it back up. But I thought I´d better ask here first because I´m pretty ignorant about suspensions. It´s an 04 aluminum NRS. Thanks in advance.

    here is a link to the giant suspension manual. they instruct you to use BLUE Loctite.
