Auto parts stores have what you need. I call it "liquid graphite", but don't know if that is the proper name. It comes in a small squeeze tube that sorta looks like the small tubes of loctite. Ask someone in the parts store other than the high school kid they hired yesterday.

Lithuim lube (white grease) or graphite lube will work
