Brakes, Finally

So, I've had my new Black Magic brakes and new Rotors sitting here for Six Weeks ! Every time I got ready to install them I ended up having to work.
This will be my first brake job on the Jeep. I have everything I need and have read as much as possible on the job. I know about the break in procedure and all, but was wondering if there is anything I should do while I have the brakes apart.
What do you all normally grease on your calipers and such when you do your brakes ?
I just flushed all the old Brake fluid and replaced it. The stuff that came out was the color of Coffee. Now it's clear and clean.
Any advice would be great ! Im really happy about finally getting to do this.
Thanks.

Sounds like you have done your homework. Are you doing the rear too and are they drums or disks?

Just the front this round. Back drums are good for now.
Fronts are squeaky when I step on or let off the pedal, that's why I asked if there is anything I should address while I'm in there.
Not sure just what should get brake grease.

The guide pins on the calipers and where the pads ride on the caliper.

So, the back of the pads themselves or the area they contact ? And I'm imagining just a very light coat so nothing gets in contact with the Rotor. That would be my main concern.
Thanks for you help by the way.

Not the back of the pads. Where the "ears" of the pads ride on the caliper.

Oh, ok. I knew that. I thought you meant in an additional spot. Thanks.

Those look great, I'll be doing a brake job when I get the funds and it gets a bit warmer. Not tough, right? I've researched it too, it doesn't seem too bad.
