lubrication for caliper

I read in a service manual that you should clean then grease the moving parts of the caliper when you re-mount it onto the rotor(i.e. when changing brake pads). My question is, which parts should you grease? This was in a '93 Escort haynes manual.

Generally the pivots/mounting pins of the caliper where they slide.

Parts stores have grease for this purpose as I recall.

Joe's gotcha covered on the lube. I like the synthetic permatex Ultra disc brake and cal. lube. 2oz squeezable bottle. About 8 bucks if I remember right. Pt No. 20355
