Default brakes question

Hey guys! Lost a bolt on the passenger side caliper last night. Figure excessive road vibration and improper torque applied when rotor changed may have been culprit. Does anyone know this to be an issue? Should have I added loc-tite or another product to these bolts? Any help is appreciated!

I think that the torque setting for the caliper bolt is 65 ft-lbs. I've never used loctite on them and they've held fine. I wouldn't recommend loctiite, as they can be hard enough to get out at times.

i would do nothing more than properly torque the bolts, under-torqing and also even over-torqueing can cause bolt failures and loosening
