My opinion - Depends on how long since the last torque/re-torque.

If they are rusty/frozen clean/wire brush the nuts and exposed threads, one at a time loosen enough just to break them free so they move, and re-torque.

If they are in good shape - just re-torque.

Do not use any lube/ATF/etc. on the threads. Torque values are speced for clean dry threads.
