Shoulder or not, I use the blue thread locker (Loctite 242 or similar) to secure kingpin screws. This stuff is made so that you can still back the screw out when you have to. Loctite also has a purple formula, no. 222MS, which is rated at "low strength" (242 is "medium"), but I haven't tried it.

So long,

Andy
