About 3 years ago I got a Squier Strat Standard and it came with 09-42 strings. I always used that size, but now I decided to try out the 10-52s. Is my neck going to have some problems because of the added tension? Do I have to do any adjustments to the truss rod, or am I good to go?

You'll have to put them on and find out. You will need to set the intonation. Also that is a huge jump. Try 10-46's first.

I adjusted the bridge. The Strat Standard has a bridge which is slightly lifted, so of course I had to add a spring (I had only 2 before) and adjust it... The intonation was still fine on every string except the low E which was a little lower, but no big deal...
And I already had the 10-52s on my old guitar, but I never really cared much since it was a cheap Strat copy... On the Squier I was fine with the 09-42s, but now I was tempted to try again the 10-52s.

I'm surprised you didn't have to adjust more. I always have to fiddle with the intonation even if I use same gauge and brand.
