Quick question

Hey I put my j and m lower control arms on a weekend or so ago and reused the factory bolts. Now I've had no problems with anything, no noises or anything out of the ordinary. I was wondering if anyone else reused their factory bolts and if they ran into any issues. I checked all the bolt threads and made sure they were good to go and used some blue loctite to secure them down when I put them back on.

I have to drive about three hours tomorrow to Cookesville, Tenneessee for my Uncles funeral and after reading online about how vital it is to get new bolts from ford I'm kind of paranoid. Has anyone else reused they're bolts when installing the lower control arms? Have you ran into any issues?
