replacing both raid 1 drives

I'm looking for the best way to replace my 2 hard disks in raid 1 for 2 new ones ( of the same size ).

If my disks are in bay #0 and #1 can i just put the new one in bay #2 and use clonezilla to clone the disk from bay #0 to bay #2? Then replace disk #0 and #1 with the cloned disk and the other and rebuild the array?

You could, but then you could also simply replace one of the drives, wait for the rebuild to finish and then replace the second drive.
