Now that I have a tube in my grease gun I've been tempted to use once I install my polly bushings and zerks. Anyone try this on poly suspension stuff yet?
I did all mine with Amsoil and I don't see why there would be any problems. But them again I Also have zerks in mine so I can put some more in if there is a problem.

I use this stuff too. It's still there the next time I pull the slider pins out, so I assume it's doing its job.... interesting about it not being safe for rubber though.

don't use any petroleum based lubricants on parts that touch rubber. they'll soften the rubber and eventually they get brittle and crack. No bueno in your brake-o
get synthetic, silicone based lubricants for the slide pins and whatever anti seize stuff you wanna use on the pads.
It's a very debatable subject but every mechanic has its ways of doing things. Ive just seen too may pins seize up because of that.

Soft is the opposite of brittle.

Has anyone used Redline CV-2?

It's probably similar to the amsoil stuff right?
