Pad and rotor replacement hardware

Sorry if this has been posted already, I looked in a bunch of places but didn't find anything definitive one way or another. I am going to be changing out my pads and rotors soon (both front and rear) and before I order the parts I'd like to know if I am supposed to be using new hardware everywhere.

I recently just replaced my front control arms, which I know calls for all new hardware, but none of the guides/videos I've seen on the brakes mentions it.

Thanks in advance.

The recommendation is to use new bolts on the pad carriers. I don't think it's necessary, some Loctite Blue will provide any necessary thread locking.

You shouldn't need to replace any of the bolts. Use a torque wrench and you'll be fine.

How many miles does your car have? Were the brakes serviced in the past?

Car is at 56000 miles. Bought the car CPO off of a lease at 28000 miles in Dec 2018. I have full what I believe to be full service records (assuming the first owner/lessee didn't have any independent work done). No prior brake service done, with exception of fluid. The 28000 miles I've put on includes a few track days, as well
