Not unless they are all bad. What is happening that makes you feel it may need done?

I doubt that they all have gone bad. Are you getting spark to the plugs? Were there any codes you had before taking it apart

I wouldn't spend the money on all the coils, Check to see if you are getting spark and fuel to the engine.
