I use thin grease on the pivot of the levers and the end of the cable that attaches to the lever, and a thin oil like Bel-Ray 6-in-1 for the cable, itself.

I use one of those cable lube tools that clamps over the cable with a thumb screw.

Got any particular brand??? I'm a little green when it comes to bikes...Jeeps, sports cars, and I'm OK, but with bikes, I am a fish out of water right now!!!

any white lithium grease works. i recommend the spray one for cables since its easier and 'cleaner' when you apply it on. There no ' correct brand ' its like WD-40 vs Honda Lubricate or Yamaha lubricate.

I recommend graphite; oils seem to 'stick' after a little while requiring you to reapply.

u can find it in the lock section of the hardware store.
