I reuse the rocker bolts. But I always use new head bolts.

The rocker arm bolts are strong enough to reuse. If you don't feel good about it, get new ones, but make sure they are built strong enough.

Alright thanks. One more question cause I'm still relatively new to working with valve train parts on reinstalling the rocker arms would I need to lube the contact points or any parts of the rockers?

Yes I always lube the contact points when putting rockers back in.
