You'll need to measure the head bolts to see if they have stretched and are no longer reusable. I would go with a set of studs, especially if you are going to use a metal head gasket.

I guess i'll have to measure them? should the specs be in my Toyota repair manual?

Found this set of 4 sockets that are all 12 point, 6mm 8mm 10mm and 12mm. The 12mm was the correct fit!! only cost me $5.99 :D at Oreillys.
