I have a 2002 dodge ram 3500 rear axle shaft bolts keep breaking loose. Replaced bolts, added loctie and problem persists. notices bolts come loose quicker when truck has a load. Any recommendations on how to fix issue?

Are you talking about the 6 or 8 small bolts that hold the end cap of the axle on there and are visible when the hub cap is removed?

Maybe the pinion nuts backed of little and is allowing the gears to walk in and out of eachother causing a vibration that is harmonically removing bolts slowly. 

 

This happened on my dana 80 took me a long time to track it . This also ate my gears.  I'm still running it but getting tons of metal dust nd chunks. I may upgrade to a dana70 when my 80 goes. Damn thing just keeps going but is eating itself. 

 

I did think wheel bears. Checked both sides multiple times.

The have that little staple thing that keeps the axle nut from backing off I think that cant come off because the axle bolt flange keeps it from backing out.  I think.

I had done rear rotors nd thought I'd reinstalled bearings without the correct preload.  Almost all things come back to what I ws just working on this why I kept going back to wheel bearings.
