Grease is applied to negate the effects of cro-moly steel sticking in aluminium and does a fine job of it. It doesn't "loosen" anything
It has it's place for certain things, usually bolts that should be tightened with a low ish torque, helps prevent them coming lose with vibration, and I would always use it on the bolts that hold the discs for disc brakes onto the wheels, and also the bolts in the rear suspension of a full suss mtb.Sheffield_Tiger said:
