I replaced the front shocks last summer but the lower bolts keep loosening up. I keep thinking that Iíve got the bolt pretty tight but this is the third time I have to tighten them. Should I use some type of thread locking compound to keep the bolt from backing out?

I would. They have some that are removable,so you can take it apart again.

I would say so. I think you should find the torque spec too.
