Yes, and make sure they move freely. I use anti-seize to lubricate.

Yes, that would be them. Lube them often...
while your at it, its a very good idea to change the break fluid. The fluid is hydroscopic and attracts water. And never use fluid from a bottle that has been use already and put back on the shelf.

^^^^ Information that virtually nobody knows. Excellent to hear it. Brake fluid is hygroscopic, and absorbs water. (except the newest silicon based brake fluid) Fortunately brake fluid isn't expensive. Buy just what you need, and if you want to carry extra, buy a small, new container, and carry that.

I recomend cleaning out the holes that the sliders go into with some brake cleaner and a rag. I used a thin rag to clean mine out and got a bunch of junk out of there that was caked to the walls. Just used the back end of a long wood q-tip to push the rag in and move it around. My sliders were pretty bad though, one was frozen in blace and I had to beat it out with a 3lb sledge against an open-end wrench wrapped around the pin head.

Also make sure you pay attention to which slider goes in which hole. They are different, top and bottom.
