To my knowledge I don't think they are TTY bolts but somewhere along the line I read that they should be replace. How many of you guys reuse the 12pt driveshaft bolts?

I never change them and don't use Loctite either unless it's on a recacar or heavy-duty truck. Whoever said to replace them is full of it.

No need to change them. I've reused them over and over again. However, when I swapped to the C4 and had to use a driveshaft spacer I went with longer allen head bolts.

No problem. I recommend locktite just because i had all 4 bolts come loose on me even after torquing them down. Took a while but then out of no where i started to get this violent shake when cruising. They were all finger tight when i crawled under to see what was wrong

Mine are out 4-5 times a year and never use loc tite. Just tighten them up good and they are fine
