U-bolt replacement

when i install my AAL, do i need to replace my U-bolts? it looks like they will still bolt in (entire head on the threaded part). but i was just told that I need new bolts and it'll cost me $100 for the 4. can i use the stock ones?

You don't need to, but you should because when they are torqued down they stretch so they should only be used once.
