Yes on loctite in the bolts, too much vibration on the wheels to go without. I don't know on the torque specs, might be the hanes manual for the truck. (best $20 you'll ever spend)

Just to clarify since the OP is a bonehead and gave incorrect information, you should ALWAYS use Loctite on the caliper bracket bolts that thread into the steering knuckle. If you don't, they WILL walk back out, and you will find (and hear) your caliper brackets carving deep ridges into your rotors.

I myself use red Loctite just to be safe.

I repacked my bearings since they looked so good, but i'm not sure that I could get those original seals out in good enough shape to re-use them it's been a while since i was in there, so it may be possible or impossible, not sure. but i personally like to get new seals/o-rings because if anybody has to go back in & fix something like that a second time, its me lol.
