If you don't have Loctite you can use grease. Believe it or not, it works the same way as Loctite. I do it frequently and it works great.

I agree with MX tuner. I don't use Loc-tite on the swingarm bolts but I make sure clean the threads thorougly and torque the nuts to the proper specs. I have never had any to back off (knock on wood).
