For critical stuff, I try to use new when I can. Have I ever taken something off and used the same hardware to reistall it? Yes.

There are some things that you don't scrimp on. Use the proper bolts on the bottom of the struts WITH the lock wire, use loctite when appropriate, use proper tighening torques.

It all depends on what is being done and what your situation is. If I'm stuck on the side of the road at Lake Tahoe, I'm gonna use whatever I have on hand and just torque the s*** out of it.

I work on aircraft and the official word on ny-locs (in any area unless stated) is they can be reused (If absolutely necessary) IF they can not be wound on by hand past the nyloc portion. This applies more to non nyloc type self locking nuts but I have never seen a failure when this rule is adhered to. Of course, this applies to a/c quality hardware...
