Lidar i2c addresses

I have a rover currently fitted with a single forward facing Lidar and rear facing sonar but its become glaringly obvious that a single VL53L1X is wildly inadequate and so having another sitting here, I’ve ordered a third to get sufficient fov on the front end.

My question is what will happen when 3 identical modules are hooked up, will I have to manually change the address of each one?

I currently have 1 lidar, 1 sonar, compass and an oled on the i2c so will be increasing the devices on the bus to 6.
