Adjusting bridge before changing strings

I'm going to borrow a friend's guitar for a gig in 4 days, it's a Fender Squire. I'm planning on changing its strings from 9's to 10's before the gig, because I'm more comfortable with those. I need to know though, will I need to get the bridge or something else adjusted before I change the strings? Because I own an Ibanez RG series, and I know that I had to get the bridge adjusted before I could switch to different string gauges. The Fender doesn't have a whammy bar.

You would adjust the bridge after you put on new strings. You may need an extra tremolo spring too.
