Any harm in installing and torquing rods one at a time?

I always have and havent had any issues... yet.

A more experianced builder was over at my house the other night and scolded me over it. He noted that i could be twisting the rod by not having it support by the other rod.
I never really gave it much thought until now.

From now on I plan on installing both rods and sticking a feeler gauge in between before torquing just for good measure.

But, have I been getting lucky all this time?

Any here guilty of this? Ever have any related problems?
