yeah silicone spray is what i use. dont use crc or wd40. dust and dirt stick to it big time and the rails get end up even more gunky and stuff it up worse.my opinion anyway

Think graphite powder is the best alternative here. Apparently ford make a special product, esspecially for this purpose. I can't remember the name of it now but if you do a search i'm sure it'll come up in a few posts. Only probelm is it costs about $80 a can or something, so not exaclty cheap!

I used KY jelly on mine once but they kept going up ;):P :?
