    I'll have to ask after that stuff. I wonder if auto parts places would
    have it?

    Thank you fro the caution about get it on hands and clothes.

    I use Sil-glide on the slides and pins. It's a waterproof ultra high
    temp silicone based grease. Once on it doesn't come off easily and
    water
    /salt has NO effect on it. Wear gloves when using and try REALLY hard
    not to get it on clothes. It's a bear to get out...

    Using it makes a BIG difference up here in the NE.

    Should be standard procedure on any brake job... All rust build up
    should be removed back down to the parent metal.

    CY: Sounds wise.

    Too thick, the pads and caliper will scrape it off.
    Use the SylGlide like Steve says or use a purpose based brake lube
    like
    CeramiLube.

    CY: Where does one get that grease? I found high temp silicone grease
    on Ebay, but it was ghastly expensive.

    A seized piston usually can be determined when pushing the piston back
    to fit the new pads.

    CY: That's a t hought. Pushed back OK.

    Calipers have a finite life, IIRC, this car is fairly old. Might be
    time.

    CY: It's 1993 model. No telling how old the calipers are.

    SylGlide=NAPA, CarQuest. it's a staple product.
    CeramiLube is available thru Bendix brakes.

    The reason for cleaning the rotors before use is supposedly to get all
    the machining residue (metal) off of them. Also it is claimed that to
    get that residue off you must clean them with soap and water, not just
    solvent brake cleaner. If you don't clean them that way then you will
    have the metal residue still on the rotors and it will get embedded
    into the brake pad possibly causing noise or accelerated wear. That's
    the "official" word I've read on it. Having said all that, for years
    I never did anything but nowadays I do the whole cleaning routine. Not
    sure I see any difference in the final product as far as brake
    performance.

    Well, if we talk about clothes, I usually buy branded clothes. I order it from online stores at competitive prices. For example, not so long ago I ordered an exclusive timberland brand boots from this online store https://www.walk-inmycloset.com/collections/timberland. In my opinion this is a good option, this store has really favorable prices
