Am I right that 574 is not the same thing as red threadlocker? NAPA is closed today; they usually have a better selection of things like that.
Not sure where the 574 or thread locker would be used on the outer CV joint? I wouldn't use red thread locker until I was sure as it's pretty close to permanent. Where exactly do you think you need to use this substance? 574 is orange color so that may be why the AZ guys thought it was similar, but I'm pretty sure its thicker sort of like watery silicon sealant usually used to seal between mating surfaces as a kind of gasket material, I thought.
