Garage door Track lubrication - How to

I was told that I need to lubricate my garage door track with a grease type product. I have the tube of stuff, but there are no instructions. Do I just run a bead along the entire track from spring to opener?

Lubricating the track won't do much good- it's more likely that you need to lubricate each of the roller bearings and the roller bushing. Occasionally you'll find that one of those rollers has seized bearings, is bent or the like, and in that event you can just replace that roller.
