I'm about to fit my XT pedals onto XT crank arms. Will any grease do or should i use specific grease?

Also, any reccommendations for good grease? Both carbon and non carbon parts.

Thanks

    carbon paste if you need anything I prefer an undersized post and a shim as you are less likely to to damage the post.
