Was installing the Cusco 22mm swaybars and removed the subframe to make things easier. I noticed in the service manual it says to replace the M12 bolts when you reinstall the subframe. There are 8 of them that are M12. So...did everybody just reuse the old bolts or are new bolts needed to replace them?

Replace them... I have never heard of actually "replacing" the bolts, I always just use the same ones, my subframe has been off atleast 4 or so times.

I am just a little bit worried because the top of all my M12 bolts seem to be missing thread. This is the first time those bolts have ever been touched. There is about a quarter of an inch of thread on the bolt that has less depth than the threads on the rest of the bolt. Eight of them are like that - I'm talking about depth that would not even be able to hold on to anything.

Thanks for the part numbers nhluhr.
Thanks for the responses as well.
