Default Need Help ASAP! OEM Lexus/Toyota Shim Kit

Well I've finally recovered enough from my level II MCL tear to start working on my daughters GS300 again. I'm a little stumped on where to apply the supplied grease MOLYKOTE (R) AS-880N GREASE that came with the OEM Lexus shim kit. Below are some pics of the supplied hardware for reference. My initial thought was the grease was for the sliding caliper pins, but I'm thinking it goes on the back of the pad where it contacts the shiny shim. Still trying to figure out the black shim part

Grease everything that makes metal to metal contact. Re-use the OEM shims. Take your time. Clean everything. lots of grease and you should have no squeal. Good luck
