What car??? If you have torque-to-yield bolts like a lot of manufacturers use, there's a little extra stretch in there that really jams them tight. I would not worry about checking them.

On anything made since about the mid 80s, absolutely not. Of course, there may be that "rare" exception, but uneeded on most vehicles.
