Dana 44 rear axle retaining bolts, resuse or replace?

The service manual says replace the rear axle retaining bolts. I have hear from several this isn't necessary, just use some locktite?

I reuse those particular bolts and put Loctite on them. Though important, they aren't under a whole lot of stress.
When you have a choice, buy American.
