Looking for Sil-Glyde

Anybody know where to find Sil-Glyde in the GTA? Planning to change my front rotors and pads this weekend and would like to use this for the caliper pins/sliders. Will use CRC Disk Brake Quiet on the back of the pads.
Nothing to see here folks...

Napa had some house brand stuff that's basically the same. Comes in a long tube. If you are set on Sil check Kijiji as a few Indy shops sell it.

Napa is supposed to sell it I thought, but yes they also have their house brand which is similar... I used the Permatex stuff as it was easier to find.

Are you referring to this Permatex lubricant? If so, how's your experience with it? Have you checked the caliper pins/sliders after some time to see if the lube has dried up and/or hardened?

I'm using this stuff in one of the cars. So far one brushing shows minor swelling.

No, I used this one - I havent checked under there since I did them though. It was only a few months ago.

Ended up finding Sil-Glyde at Napa in Georgetown. The stuff is great. Much better than CRC synthetic caliper grease that I used to use before I discovered Sil-Glyde.

True, no one does. I usually keep my vehicles ten or more years and get rid of them usually because I am tired of them, they are always mechanically sound when I sell them. Same calipers on them they came with always. I also only lube when I change the pads out not this once a year silliness everyone seems to advocate nowadays.
Bad brake fluid with water in it is the killer of calipers.

Even Petroleum based? Sure it can "work", but soon you will discover the rubber boots will have all rotted out due to reaction with the lube.

No evidence so far on the stock ones on my 86 monte carlo ss that I have owned for over 31 years, nor have I ever had that issue on any other vehicle I have owned and I usually keep them a long time.

I use this. Purchased at the NAPA store for under $20. You can probably find it cheaper elsewhere.
