Do not use brake grease on your caliper pins

I've tried the CRC Synthetic Brake Grease on my caliper pins and all it does is harden up over time. I just redid the front brakes again and the pins would barely move. This, inturn, wears the pads unevenly. This time I am using the following stuff:

Rubber Grease
Toyota p/n: 08887-01206
About $8 / 100g tube.

Supposedly this is the factory stuff used/provided with brake caliper rebuild kits. It's pink in color.

Thanks for all this good info!

I tried to order the Toyota grease from the local dealer at $10, but it isn't in the local warehouse, so I did some more research and found some good reviews of Permatex synthetic caliper lube. I think I'll try that.

I also found a good price on Akebono ProAct premium ceramic pads online. $99 for both front and rear including ground shipping from Miami.
