The stud coming out with the nut is from corrosion. The stud gets torqued to a spec if you are being careful. Tight enough to stay in there but not so tight it's jammed in the threads. Probably something low like 10-15ftlb as a guess. The anti seize being on there tends to make you over torque things so be careful.

I use the Wurth copper anti seize. Great stuff and the can has lasted about 20 years. The aluminum anti seize is good to low temp applications such as shock and suspension bolts.
