Anyone using anti-seize on their pivot bolts? Some thing llike Loctite C5-A Anti-Seize compound. Thinkin' it might make more sense than grease for this application.

It's no cure all but does seem to work better/last longer than grease...SC needs to put some R&D into this issue...this bike is just a PITA to keep creak free.

Loctite® 8060 - Aluminium Anti-Seize ?

Well I use the Rock'n'roll that Santacruz recomended, but I don't know if this from Loctite is better.

Loctite® 8060 - Aluminium Anti-Seize

Cures rapidly to provide immediate low pressure sealing. Its controlled lubricity prevents galling and protects mated threaded areas from rust and corrosion. Its creamy semi-solid consistency allows for optimum control during application.

Applications

Specifications
• Solid Lubricating Agent: Aluminium & graphite
• Temperature Range: -30 to +900°C
• N.L.G.I. Class: 0
• Colour: Aluminium

I'm not exactly sure concerning the "aluminum" reference. It sounds a lot like the antiseize type pictured here that we use at our shop. I'd bet they're the same, mine just doesn't use the term "aluminum based". There's probably aluminum, graphite, moly, and a bunch of other magic dust in the Permatex stuff too.

I applied anti-seize on BLT rear shox axle two month ago and bike is creak free since then.

Permatex and Locktite are both owned by the same parent company and are made in the same factory. Look at the catalog number. If it's the same number, they are exactly the same product. It's a funny corporate world we live in. Check it out!
