lubricating Pacbrake

I've got an 05', C-9, 400HP Cat. I've read that the push rod that operates the Pacbrake should be lubed. After close inspection I don't see anyway to do that short of just spraying something on the spring and exposed portion of the shaft. What, if anything, is the proper way to lube this thing. Obviously it gets very hot. Seems like anything applied to it would just burn off. Thanks for any suggestions.

should have searched here first

Thanks for the help guys. I finally thought about doing a search here and all the information I needed was on previous threads. I should remember to do that first. Saw the type of lube and instructions on how/where to lube and use air to operate the cylinder to get to all the points. Ordered the lube on line. Thanks again.
