Default Best grease for window rails?

I've seen several posts on here for slow moving power windows on 94-97 Accords with several different opinions. Before I buy a new window motor for the drivers door, I'm gonna try and grease the rails. I'm wondering what the best grease or lube is to use on the window tracks/rails?

I've always used white lithium grease (spray). Others like Shin-Itsu (sp?) grease.

there's already a bunch of threads on this....but I use white lithium also. Just be sure and clean the tracks beforehand.

Shinitsu is good if you clean out the window run channel and rub it in good.
Silicone sprays work well, if you keep using it. Doesn't seem to last as long as silicone grease [Shinitsu]
Also Dow Corning '77' is a light weight silicone grease.

Shinitsu sounds like the right stuff for the job. Is this something I can find readily available at my local auto parts store or is it a specialty item?

Shin Etsu silicone grease costs about $16 at the Honda dealer for a 100 gram tube, about the size of a tube of toothpaste.

Or you can buy it online, one place that sells it is http://www.handa-accessories.com:

You can see it at their site near the bottom of this page, it costs $12 through them plus shipping (ground only):
