Which is correct, loctite or antiseize on the bolts holding the unit bearing to the knuckle?

I try to follow torque specs as much as possible. Do you know the torque specs of those bolts and the spindle nut?
I never use antiseize or loctite on the unit bearing nuts. They have a knurled face on the flange to lock the nut.

There isn't a spindle nut on unit bearings.

One tip. When you go buy a new unit bearing, it will not have the 4 unit bearing studs on it. You can either go buy new ones from the dealer (get new nuts too), or you can try to remove the old studs and put them on the new bearing. that process is a serious pain in the ass. You have to double nut the stud and apply a serious amount of heat on the unit bearing to remove the stud. Without a torch, you'll never get the studs removed.
