turbo o-rings

My turbo o-rings have been leaking oil for awhile so its time to replace them. Is it better to install them dry or put a little oil/grease on them first? I think in the past I've used a little grease to help them stay in place and not fall out on me while putting everything back in.

I would lube any and all O rings going into something that will be in contact with oil.
