1997, damper fork bolt question

In the process of replacing the struts. When tightening the bolt at the bottom of the fork, should I:

1. loosely (hand tight) put the nut on the bolt while the car is still on jack stands, then lower the car to the ground, and tighten bolt to 65 foot pounds?
2. torque down the bolt to specs with the car suspended and with the wheel off the car?

It is a lot easier the second way, but I don't want to hurt the rubber bushing which could 'twist' when the car is lowered to the ground.

As a practical matter, does it really make a difference?
