The FSM says use lithium soap base glycol grease for the piston parts and disc brake grease on the inner anti-squeal shim. I have Sil-Glyde BK-4 brake lubricant, Sta-Lube SL3301 brake caliper synthetic grease, Super Lube with PTFE (rated at 450°) and CarQuest Disc Brake Quiet #2065. Can I use any of the products I already have, or do you recommend other specific products. I have uneven wear on my pads. Primarily, the top piston on the driver's side is causing extreme wear on the top of that pad.

I rebuilt my calipers and replaced my pads. I used brake fluid as the lubricant for all internal caliper components. I used CarQuest Disc Brake Quiet #2065 between the anti-squeal plate and the pistons. I used Sil-Glyde BK-4 brake lubricant on the pins, between the pads and anti-squeal plates and outside of the piston boots for RH brake, and I used Super Lube with PTFE (rated at 450°) on the pins, between the pads and anti-squeal plates and outside of the piston boots for LH brake. I'll keep my eye on the brakes over time to see there is a performance difference between Sil-Glyde and Super Lube.

I've been using never-seze on my slide pins the past few years. I used to always use special caliper slide pin lube but started finding that it would gunk up on the pins and turn into a hard substance on the pins after a year and a half or so (unless I serviced them annually), which then would prevent the pads from freely moving on them. Plus, using Never-Seze helps the pins not get stuck in the caliper and get all distorted, mushroomed and bent whenever I try to next remove them.
