The rear brake caliper has that like frame peice that it bolts to and then that peice bolts to the axel/hub. Now the slider pin things, that the bolts for the caliper go into, that sit in this frame bit need to be greased (i'm reconditioning the calipers). PBR instructions say Silicone Greace, but I can't find any anywhere, I have some Loctite Silicone Spray, which must be a silicone based kubricant here which I use for the window sliders, is that ok? Or I have some Goss Dri Lube, but the packaging doesn't say what it's based or any ingrediants, any recomendations?

Check the reco kit there normally is a small satchel with the grease in it. You need the correct grease , not good when they bind up.

Yeah, came with satchel of red Kulbar (or something like that), but that was for putting on the 'outside diamter of the piston'. Didn't include anything for these pins, stingy PBR.

Ended up getting a bit of a selection so that I'll hopefully have the right crap in teh future. Anyways I got:
Penrite Sin Syn Grease -it's some sorta synthetic grease.
Castrol Grease GRR(b) Rubber Greace - 'ideal for packing rubber dust covers of hydraulic and mechanical brakes'.
Penzoil Premium Wheel Bearing Grease - lithium complex.
PBR Rubber Grease - castor oil based.
Castrol Grease LMM High Melting Point Extreme Pressure - 'for automotive ball joints and constant velocity joints'.

So I guess the Castrol Grease LMM is the way to go?

If you use a bentone clay based grease the pins will stick guaranteed.

But I don't want them sticking, doesn't that defy the point of greaseing tehm? IO'm greasing them so they'll move as needed!?!
