installing suspension hardware

I have all new hardware. My questions are;

Install dry? No lube at all.

Anti galling; should I use some sort of stuff to keep the bolts to minimize the reaction between the steel bolts and the aluminum parts?

What are peoples usual practices?

I would use Anti-sieze in many places, especially in England & thread locker where specified in the service manual. Search the forum if you don't have a manual.

Luckyman, BY's tip is a good one, also remember that the suspension parts are supposed to be torqued with the suspension loaded (with the weight of the car)

I use anti-seize anytime bolts or screws are threaded into dissimilar metals.
especially steel bolts into aluminum parts.
I even use a touch on spark plug threads.
