I did on my previous Forester. So when I put them on my current one, I checked them daily for a few weeks. The leaky one will have to be replaced, either under warranty or buying another set.
Your 04 requires the longer speed bleeder for the fronts. There are shorter 1010's out there. But they will try to seal at the top on the caliper and bottom of the hex head. The shorter ones will surely leak.
Once torqued down, there should be no flow thru the center, as that is sealed by the pintle ( conical shaped tip )on the bottom of the bleeder ( speed bleeder ) screw
