Default Do Handle Bar Bolts on Hammer need Loctite?

The stock handle bars on 2012 Hammer S seemed, for lack of a better term, "uneven/miss-aligned" by about 1/4 inch. I'm talking about the bolts that secure to the forks not the clamps that adjust the angle of the bars.

I loosened the Bolts, which took significant force, and there was a distinct "crack" when the bolt broke loose. I aligned the bars then tightened the bolts.

But should I have used blue loctite?

P.S. the "miss-alignment" of the bars was not effecting anything. It was more of a visual thing - like when the steering wheel on you car is turned yet the alignment is good.
