I inserted the brake cleaner spray straw into the pin tubes, to force the old grease out (have a rag to catch all the crap that flies out). Then applied silicone paste to the pins, and inserted them two or three times to get more new paste into the tubes. The new paste doesn't have to be packed into the tubes. I also worked the caliper back and forth without the pads in, to distribute the paste and ensure full range of movement.
On a side note, be very careful not to damage, or even a wrinkle the pin boots. Any gap in the seal will cause problems down the road.
