Replacing the rocker arm bolt hardware is not really necessary unless yours are damaged. The main thing you want to do is replace the bushings and polish the rocker shafts.
If you are changing cams you need to regrind the rocker arm pads as well but if you are reusing the cams then mark them so they go back against the same cam lobes or you will create wear issues.
Look into buying the RSR rocker shaft seals as well to prevent leaks in the cam towers that make the engine messy. These are expensive but do a good job. Do it while you got the top end out.
