Default Rear Cradle Bolts

I'm looking to replace some bolts and do some work on the rear end again this winter and figured it would be best to refresh the bolts that has nearly 100k miles on them.
Would you guys think these are suitable products from these specific vendors? As in, will I be screwing myself going through them? Want to do it right the first time and not have some catastrophic issues down the road. Haha!

http://oemcats.com/oem-parts/92138127.html (Diff Carrier Bolts) I think this is selling them individually?

Rob Anderson at Wretched is great to deal with. He also has one of the most complete hardware / bolt kits available for the GTO., He is / was a GTO owner as well and is extremely knowledgeable. FYI the rear cradle control arm bolts (the large bolt that goes straight up in to the three bolt triangle mount) are a bitch to get out and may not come out successfully. Soak everything many times, several days out with a good penetrating oil

+1 also if you haven't already changed the subframe bushings now would be a good time to do so with the bolts out as well as the sway bar bushings.

Thanks for the reply, guys.

I've already removed the rear-end and updated everything bushing wise. This winter, I plan on doing some new suspension work that isn't based around the normal, OEM, suspension layout. (Gforce rear coil over to be exact) So, I was going to weld in the new camber plate on the cradle. I just fear reusing TTY bolts that have been through 3 previous owners with an unknown history of car work.

But, i'm glad you guys gave the thumbs up on the bolts AND the website. Definitely have them bookmarked for when I'm going to buy.

Thanks, gents. Much appreciated.
