Are new head bolts required every time you do head gaskets?

Just my opinion, but I would DEFINITELY replace the head bolts that the 87+ cars use. Too many issues of stretching reported in times past for my liking. For me, it outweighs the risk though some have gotten away with it before.

Thanks Austin. I believe that I am going to order them.
I heard that the cam cap bolts are $7 each at 54 bolts.
Don't think ILL replace all of them.
