use anti-seize compound to help prevent corrosion as well as stripped threads. i put it on every bolt that comes out of my car.

i can't really say for your particular dilemma, pics would be great, then i could probably make a more accurate suggestion.

just make sure that the castle nut is on the threads properly before you tighten it.
