    Comments about Permatex Ultra Disc Brake Caliper Lube (8 oz):

    Used during replacement of pads and rotors on Jeep. The brush made is easier and much less messy than the packets of lube provided with the pads. The brush is stiff and bent which makes it easier to apply lube to back of pads and wear points on caliper brackets. The lube is thick and stays where put.

      Comments about Permatex Ultra Disc Brake Caliper Lube (8 oz):

      This container includes an applicator brush built into the lid. I use this on every brake job to insure calipers function smoothly and the brake pads are able to glide in and out evenly. I've noticed my brake pads always wear evenly and equally, front to back and side to side, with no grinding or squeaking.
      Clean all the brake parts & pieces, pins, boots, etc, then use this during reassembly anywhere that the parts are sliding, gliding or rubbing to make sure nothing binds up or sticks, and to prevent parts rusting in place (like guide pins/bolts). It frustrates me when someone volunteers to replace a friend's front brake pads, then the friend comes to me 2 months later because brakes are pulling to one side or squeaking and I find out Mr volunteer didn't use brake cleaner, or brake lube, or stop-squeak - just took the old pads out and put the new ones in. So use this stuff and do the job right the first time.
      Also, this container holds the equivalent of about 50 of the little packets that are sold at the counter. Doing the math shows a 90% savings.

        Comments about Permatex Ultra Disc Brake Caliper Lube (8 oz):

        Use this product on all of my brake jobs. It's part of doing the job correctly. Calipers need to be properly lubricated to insure trouble free and quiet performance.

        Remember though a little goes a long way so don't overdo it.

        Lastly, don't forget the importance of cleaning everything before reassembly. Brake dust is corrosive and causes binding. Liberal use of brake cleaner will insure years of trouble free service.

        I like to work the calipers in and out before final assembly to insure that everything is working as designed.

        One time, I discovered that one caliper was sticking. Had I not, I would have had to replace the rotors and pads within a few thousand miles as it was hanging up very badly.

                        I'm glad to be of assistance! You may use this to reduce brake noise as well. Like you have stated you would want to make sure it's on the back side of the pads facing the caliper. This is also a great way to keep your caliper piston lubricated as well.
