I went ahead and ordered new hardware (for my own peace of mind) and in the process found out that Ford updated the front strut bolts/nuts and the parts numbers in the service manual aren't valid anymore.

I also read around various forums if you rally or drag race your car you'll want to replace the bolts with new ones. If you've been running for awhile without any problems then I wouldn't worry about it. Maybe next time you have you front tires off check the torque on the bolts?
Prob a good idea for me to do in the spring. If I did a tq spec search last year I probably used specs from 05-09 thinking the 2010 wouldn't be different.
