Replacing upper control arms on 95 Cherokee. Question about bolts.

In the process of replacing the upper control arms and bushings. Jeep was in a fender bender couple of years back (not me!) and the bushings are bad. Got them out ok and getting ready to put the new ones in. Just need some advice on whether or not to use the original bolts that held the control arm in or replace them? If replacement is recommended, where do I get them from? Thanks!

It's okay to re-use control arm bolts. As long as they're not rusted away or somehow warped you're fine.
