Silicon Grease

Recommended Posts

What is everyone using when the manual calls for silicon grease (e.g. caliper pins)? I have some caliper lube that I use on my vehicles, so I'd imagine that would work.

The silicon grease is speced because of its tolerance for heat.  Caliper grease should be a silicon based grease.  I buy mine from an auto parts store.

 

There are other high temp greases for brake components, the air brakes on my motorhome spec a clay based grease for the slack adjusters and cams (not chassis grease). Not using the correct grease can cause brakes to not fully release.
