I was reading previous posts where people were moving shims around to reuse them where they could. Is this actually ok to do or should I just replace them all? :)

Save the money and move them around where you can.

They can be reused indefinitly as long as there is no abnormal wear. I've even ground mine down on a flat plate to get the correct clearance...
