Studs and springs needed for 238/80%'s ?

Just recently bought ARPs for the truck, I see more people running without studs. I know it's a good preventative measure. So what I'm wondering is it all necessary? Truck has 230k on it right now so I'm sure my stock valve springs are worn so I know I should do those.

Very valid point. Was just curious as to how durable the stock bolts are.

i would go ahead and install the studs one at a time, since your head gaskets are in good shape, no reason to kill the great seal of the seasoned gaskets. fyi, i have 238/100's with stock springs, pushrods, and stock head bolts
