We are probably in the same rust belt. Looking at pics is tough but I think those threads are fine. Wire brush them a bit to get the gunk off, apply a little grease and spin the nut up and down the bolt a few times. Degrease the bolt and torque down the nut. 44 ft lbs is not really a great deal of torque and bolt will handle it just fine.

Yep, GTA guy here. Was a little rough getting em off and on on the threads with rust but hasnt seemed to cross thread, atleast that time.

Started a new career that takes me all across the GTA periodically so gotta finally beef up the Yaris for until Toyota dealership wait times get reasonable for a Corolla Cross or Rav awds. Put it off for 4 years based on my post history lol. Looking into lowering springs as well.
