I know you shouldn't, but how many times can you reuse TTY bolts?

Including the original factory install, panhard bar install, and gear install, these things have already been torqued 3 times. Went to Ford this morning and they wanted like $60+ for the two fasteners. I refuse to spen that much money on 2 bolts and 2 nuts if I don't have to. I was just getting a little eerie using these so many times.

As long as you throw some locktite on them and the threads are not messed up then they are fine. Mine have now been torqued 3 or 4 times. I also ont think the fasteners go bad, i think its the bolts themselves that the treads just get messed up on. SO if you wanted to go down to the Home Depot closest to you and get a bolt about the same size and stuff you could use that one.

Yeah, I thought about just going down to Ace Hardware and matching them up, but I sure am not going to pay Ford for what they want for those. They must be pretty effin proud of them bolts.
