Working on brakes can be a thankless job.

This grease is to lubricate the metal to metal contact points, and help prevent brakes from sticking due to wear and rust.

It was fairly inexpensive, and a tube lasted me a couple of years.

So far, it has lived up to it's expectations, and seems to stay put.

A little extra 'touch' which may help your brakes wear evenly, and thus last longer, I would buy it again.

Again, not a necessary item, but something which might set your brake jobs apart from the ordinary.

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

I use that stuff religiously on all brake jobs. When I got my 98, all the caliper slides and pads were seized in place. I cleaned them all up and lubricated and after 4 months, everything is still moving freely :D
