I agree with Bill.
My info for rear caliper bolts says 32 ft lbs on your vehicle. Just leave it alone.

You could but at this point I would just leave them alone unless there is a problem in the function of the calipers in which case remove and replace the bolts with new bolts as the used bolts will be stretched
