    i would buy new ubolts and perches. so much easier and you don't have to worry about boogering em' up when cutting them off. and you can cut ubolts off too- saves alot of time.

    I just finished mine today. I bought new u-bolts and never used them. I would saggest that if your bolts look like there in good shape then you can use them. best of luck

    New Ubolts should be the least of your budget worries if you are undertaking the all mighty SOA. Definitely get new ones, they're designed to stretch on the first torquedown and that's what holds em tight. Reuse em and they won't hold the same, then you have to worry about them loosening on you down the road :eek: . New ones or old ones, you should do a torque check on em a while after you install em. Cut off the old ones.
