When I painted my calipers, and replace the hose brake... I hear a sound when I reverse and hit the brakes and the same foward... I wonder if I have to re apply the grease and lube, because I didn't.
Also, is that part # a GM, or other?
What exactly does each grease do?
I'm unaware of a metallic grease.
Calipers would come with a version of the same grease we are discussing for slides etc. If you hear a sound it could be many things. Please start a seperate thread and describe your sound in detail including speed etc.
The number is a Permatex brand number. The grease is used to lube the surfaces that make contact in the operation of the brakes and the pins and slides within the system. If you did not use the grease, I doubt your noise is due to that fact.
