It's a VERY good idea to. Especially if one of them has spun because it raises the metal on the crank journal for the connecting rod and the new bearing will not last long at all!
What happened to the engine exactly?
Did you remove the bearing caps yet?
Ok, here's how it goes concerning the bottom end. If any bearing spun, you need to change that connecting rod, bearing and crankshaft. If all the bearings are only worn to the copper then you can do just bearings.
Yes, heres what one looks like that spun:
You have to remove the oil pan then take each rod bearing cap off and look. They are in the pan and have do be done from the bottom.
It s a big job to get the oil pan off, you have to get the lower and upper off to get at all the bearings and remove the exhaust. Heres the pictures of what to remove to get the pans off:
Just wanted you to see what you were going to have to do so you can be prepared.
Yes jack stands for sure. Torque wrench for assembling it but you need to inspect 1 rod at a time and do not mix up the caps or put them back backwards. They only go one way on each rod so mark them.
