Tighten cabinet screws

Going through the bus to tighten all the screws in the cabinets and the table tops. I have done this before and it lasts about 6 weeks on these California highways. Then the squeaks come back.

This time I was thinking of using some clear silicone cement on each screw. Does anyone see any harm in that?

Also replacing the shocks and struts. Got the parts. Any suggestions for good labor around Dublin, CA?

Thanks,
Keith

I was told by Allen at smb to use simple wood glue on those loose screws. I do it yearly

Gorilla wood glue and if they are stripped add a toothpick and cut it flush.

Tagged. My '03 is pretty damn creaky. Noticed last weekend that the large storage cabinet behind the driver's seat has actually separated from the wall.

It isn't that close to you but I have been going to Custom Alignment in Mountain View for the past decade for shocks, alignment, brakes, and tires.
