?anti-seize or other for under carriage spare

Service center had to cut off the bolt/nut holding spare in 2008 Suburban that lives in the Northeast as the apparatus was chemically "welded" from the years of salt exposure.

Just got a 2016 Suburban; just to prevent another episode where access to the spare would be important, should I apply anti-seize or another product to the attachment assembly?

I put anti-seize on almost every nut and bolt I take off, so yes, use anti-seize. Unless you have reason to believe it will back out from vibration, then use medium thread lock.

Is there a specific type of anti-seize? The locally available versions are for aluminum

IMHO they are made of aluminum particles, not just for aluminum bolts....the old stuff was copper particles but copper prices went thru the roof.....

We use copper a/s on everything that goes through the chassis, given what can/will happen it's not worth skimping on.
