The only time you SHOULD grease those pins is if you installed brass guilds. Since it's steel on brass, you need to grease it regularly to prevent it from binding. But rubber on metal? No.
where is there rubber? The only rubber i know of is the rubber covering the caliper piston... the 2 silver 7mm allen head slide pins don't come into any contact with any rubber as far as I know? Maybe I am wrong?

And i didn't put nearly enough on for it to "leak" or "ooze" onto that boot.
