Get some new bolts and use blue loctite. Drive it a couple miles then retorque them in an "x" pattern.

I would redo it with the loctite again, torque them down to specs and let it sit over night. I've RR drive shafts before using the same bolts over and over and never had them back out. How do your U joints look? Could be some more than normal vibrations to shake them enough to back out.

If you're using threadlocker and they're still coming back out, then there might be something else under there that's going on.

I believe there's some locking bolts you can get for it, like the locking header bolts that use an E clip and tab to prevent it from backing out.
