I have round spring bars on my WD and yes, you should grease those where the metal touches metal at the hitch head. As well, you should also grease the hitch ball.

How often? I grease mine every time I hitch up and that is because when I unhitch, I wipe all of the grease off the spring bars and hitch ball as I do not want that grease all over everything.

Same recommendation from etrailer.com - Lubrication of Weight Distribution Systems to Reduce Wear on Spring Bars
