Check with Ford to see what they recommend. If they are pitted or have been over torqed or are rusty I would replace them. I would call Ford if it were my engine or look in a FACTORY MANUAL not after market manual.
Edit: I just looked at my 2003 factory manual and it didn't say anything about replacing the head bolts as normal procedure.
