What is the best lube to use on the caliper pins?
I have heard moly disulfide type recommended but can't find it in the local auto stores.
There was lithium disulfide based,
Permatex "synthetic caliper lube" with no details,
Sil-Glide silicon base lube.
I have also heard Redline CV2 grease.

Any specific brand names for a good pin lube would help.

Any high temp, disc brake specifc grease will work.

What I'm using mentions disc brakes and seems to stay put so I'll just keep using it.

Thanks Mike!

The best stuff I have ever used is Permatex Ultra Disc Brake Caliper Lube. I have tryed just about every type of lube and grease and the Permatex stuff is the only stuff that lasts through a complete set of pads before needed to be relubed.
