front axle question

Alright guys another stupid question. Im gonna do the final install on my 21" front wheel. I have a flush mount axle that screws into one of my new chrome lowers. Should i anti-sieze the axle or just grease it? Also should I Loctite the threads that go into the fork lower? The opposite side of the axle is just a allen-head and I'd hate to be breaking allen wrenches when I have to change out the front tire!

thanks much!

I always put a little antiseize on my axles. I'm not sure about the loctite though. Are you talking about the axle cap?

No sorry. I'm talking about where the actual axle screws into the lower leg.

Always anti-seize the axle, this will prevent the axle from seizing inside the wheel bearing. I use blue locktite on everything except the real small screws and bolts, then i use thread sealant.
