    Just added a Brake Caliper Bushing Stiffening Kit, Anyone used Super Lube Synthetic grease instead of the recommended anti-seize?

    What ever you use make sure it is high temp stuff. Also lube those once in while.

    I just use high temp syn grease and service them twice a year....each time I change tires to/from summer to winter.

    Anti-seize works well. It doesn't take much, and it's good because they are dissimilar metals. Lube them at least once a year.

    We recommend either brake lube grease, or anti seize.

    I use a mixture of ~30% dry molybdenum disulfide powder and ~70% bearing gel (funky syn grease) from a company called Tom Pacific... Yea, I know, it sounds like a cartoon character .....but the gel is awesome, it's an extreme temperature grease. Plus the moly is a great lube additive.
