driveshaft slip joint grease???

Whats the blue stuff on the slip joint called? I wire brushed most of mine off?
It was kind of chewed up and rough.(blue stuff was) What is the type of grease I need to use? Should the blue be put back on then grease? or just grease?

what do I ask for? where can I get it? any parts stores? The blue stiff is the grease? looked more like coating then grease was on it. Being a used truck someone might if just used regular grease. I think the slip yoke is worn. I am probably oredering one from powerstrokeshop.com but need the grease too? so Whats it called?
thx

Is this the grease you are to use when you have a clunk noise when you first take off from a dead stop? I was told to put some Ford grease on the driveshaft in order to get rid of the noise. The thought it came in a can from Ford around $30

Any help or suggestions

Thanks

No need to buy the high dollar stuff. Marine grease will do the job.
