I wouldn't know what your local Midas uses. Usually most shop will find the most economical parts to minimize cost and maximize their bottom line.
It is fairly easy to apply the brake grease. Raise the vehicle and remove the wheels. Do one side completely before attempting the other side. This way, if you happen to forget how a part is attached, you can look at the other side. It should the "mirror image" of the side that you are working on.
Use 17mm socket and 3/8 ratchet and remove the top caliper bolt. Swing the caliper towards the rear of the vehicle (pivoting on the lower caliper bolt). Remove the brake pad (one at a time). Apply the brake grease at all metal-to-metal contact points
Re-install brake pads. Wipe clean the caliper bolt and apply brake grease all over the bolt (except the bolt head, of course. Install the caliper and tighten the caliper bolt. Now do the other side.
