Default Lube required for front caliper bolts?

1995 altima. Going to do pads and new rotors. The manuals don't say anything about lubing the caliper bolts. It is a sliding caliper, isn't it? What type of lube, if any?

You have to clean and lube the pins with Lithium base glycol grease. Sometimes the new brake pads come with a small pack of grease for the pins, but if the pad you bought doesn't come with grease you can get it at any autoparts.
