Default Control arm question

Hey all.. my '99 A4 1.8tq has the infamous creaking suspension, I've done my searching and found it's most likely the upper control arms. I'm looking on ecstuning.com and finding that the OE upper control arm (straight) are $94 including the hardware and the OE 'Febi' upper control arms are only $74 but w/o the nuts/bolts. My question is, are the nuts/bolts on my Audi needing to be replaced or can I reuse them? ECStuning is selling a hardware kit for $15 because they're most likely damaged when removing them.. is that true or just a scheme to make some more money? Thanks for any input!

Consider investing in a full control arm kit like our Febi-Bilstein kit. It has all 8 arms, sway bar links, and tie rod ends. It also includes all necessary nuts and bolts.

You will probably destroy the pinch bolt when you remove it. So yes, buy the hardware kit.
