Default New LCA's - Did you reuse your bolts?

Installing new LCA's next week. Ford recommends changing the bolts and nuts and I was quoted $78 for the set at the parts department - ouch. Depending on how hard these are to get unmounted, wouldn't loctite and reuse do the trick?

i have read that many of this forum members have changed out LCA's. Most threads I researched don't mention the hardware.

So what did you do?

I reused mine. A little loctite and no problems this far.

The relocation brackets I used came with new bolts for the rear part of the LCA, but I reused the front bolts. Loctite is awesome.
