The 3M stuff that I pasted above is not copper based . Its silicone based. Eric the Car guy recommended exact same product in his video.engineered wrote: ↑May 19th, 2017 12:33 pmWhatever you use make sure it's safe for rubber. That generally means a non-petroleum product. You don't want to melt/degrade the rubber bushings the pins slide through. That 3M copper stuff looks like it may be petroleum, it's meant for metal to metal contact . Syl Gylde should be safe and the Permatex stuff you used is safe.
You really should be lubing 1-2 times a year for best results. I don't think you can expect anything to last more than 2 years without gumming up.
I've been using Teflon spray to lubricate my pins with good results. I take my pins out, put them on a drill and buff the pins clean. Then I coat them with teflon spray. I like the teflon spray because dirt/grime doesn't stick to it like the sticky, thick lubes. I only use those for the back of the pads.

Damn.. you are right but I looked for you from my order history... I got it for 25 or so dollars in 2015. I dont know whether this was on deal or prices increased so much just in 2 years...
