Might as well do it, I did. It wouldn't hurt to put the lube on both. And yes, torque the nuts to exactly what the instructions say.

Make sure you clean the threads out before you put the studs in. Any debris in the way will give you inaccurate torque readings. I've always put the moly lube on where the nuts/washers go on the studs.

no lube on the block threads at all
