Yep, that'* the trick...but you will have to clean the shim first either by using a solvent of by scraping it clean. I would suggest you remove them to clean them or use the new ones (keep the old ones in a bag soaked in oil - just incase you need them one day).
Use a very light coating of grease on the caliper bracket first, just enough to say there is a thin film, then slide the shim in place. Then use something like a small paint brush to coat the ends of the pads and the shims. Be carefull not to use too much because it will build up on the rotor side as you slide the pads in. Once both pads are inserted, use your brush again to just cover over the pad end and the shim.
You can use a little grease against the piston but I think the QuietStops come with a black paper pad on the back side so you usually don't get noise from the piston against the pad.
