torque to yield bolts can only be used once, i am pretty sure the head bolts are not sure about the crank or rod bolts.

Any bolt that is torqued to a value like "20 ft-lbs plus 90 degrees" is a torque-to-yield bolt and should be replaced.

Good idea to replace. No one sells just the bolts though, so unless you want to buy whole new rods you have to use the old stuff. Mine were not stretched so I reused them. No problems so far.

How much work was it to replace your rod bearings? Mine started making noise, I just need to see how much time i need to put aside to do them. Did you get them from the dealership?

Dealership bearings are junk and they only sell them as part of the entire piston assembly with rod. Aftermarket bearings are much better.
