Default ZF Inner Tie Rod Lock Washer

I replaced the inner tie rods on my 1982 240 ZF rack.

I found that the original lock washers would not fit the new tie rods (genuine Volvo) so I used red thread lock to secure to the rack.

Should this be fine, or might I run into some issues down the line?

You'll be fine with the high strength loctite. I used to flatten the washer in a vise and reuse it.
