There is not much thread area on those bolts given the forces they are under, so some kind of lubricant is a good idea just to be able to tighten them up properly. It also doesn't hurt to lube them so that they don't freeze up too. Grease is great. So is anti-seize compound. Even Lok-tite functions as a thread lubricant until it sets up, so that is fine too.
