I believe the C5 Service Manual may have said that new bolts were required to be used.

However, neither the C6 nor the C7 manuals say new bolts are needed.

If there was a safety risk to it GM would require it be done during a warranty job (for which the dealership would get paid). Dealers make money off warranty jobs, and in my experience, are eager to...
