lubrication for garage door?

A couple weeks ago I was advised here to try lubricating a garage door that stuck when cold.
I put some triflow on it and the difference was dramatic. However triflow seems too thin to be the correct lubricant. What should be used on a garage door?
Thanks.

Another vote for sprays. A roller broke on my garage door yesterday. Went to a garage door specialist who's been in the biz since forever. The guy said they use either teflon spray, or white lithium spray. No more thick grease - too hard to clean off, which, in a garage, is often necessary due to all the dust. The thick stuff tends to attract more filth.

Spray it on your teenagers and you can slide 'em right out the front door if they don't put the dishes in the dishwasher.

I asked the local door company this question when they installed a new opener, and they said to use an industrial spray lubricant called "LPS- 2". It should be available at any place that services garage doors (it's also used for a ton of other things, so you might also find it at a hardware store).
