I didnít replace the bolts when I did mine. Not seen a how to guide but it is pretty much same as other cars. If I remember correctly the bottom ball joint was tight to pop and the rear of arm was a wrestle to get in and line up.

No, you don't have to replace either of the bolts if they are in good condition.

They are not single-use stretch bolts, but you do have to torque and then angle tighten because of the bushes.
