Should I be on the safe side and replace them?

I'm confused by this one. I went ahead and bought a set of gaskets, which include the front and rear seals. Are you suggesting that I ditch those two and strictly use the RTV stuff?

Bolts are fine.
The gummed up parts are where they go thru the manifold and the threads don't do anything.
Make sure to use sealant on the threads.

As for the rubber intake gaskets, yes toss em (unless you want to do this job twice).
