Bad JuJu to re-use axle spring pins?

Those things are like $4 a piece from online parts stores!
...OK I'm cheap!
But is there a better place to get them? Hardware store, NAPA?
$16 for 4 for my rear end isn't too bad I guess but is there anything wrong with just reusing them?

Your old one should be fine, as long as its not bent or crushed.

I ended up having to cut as much of the CV cup off as possible without cutting into the splines from the diff and then used an old screwdriver as a cold chisel to chop the pin off and then manager to pull the pin out with pliers then bash the punch out.
not fun, took ages and two cutting grinder discs.
