kluber fluid

Does anyone know of a lube that can be substituted for this stuff? I was able to get it through a dealer several years ago but it seems like no one has it locally anymore and by the time I pay for shipping online it gets kinda pricey. For those of you who may not be familiar with this stuff , it is the lube that GM calls for in their service bulletin to fix a creaking noise in the calipers for some 2000 - 2004 or so cars. You squirt this in between the seal and the piston. Any suggestions would be helpful , thanks.

Not the same as the anti-squeal compounds used on the backs of the pads.

I have heard anecdotes of using silicone grease mixed w/silicone spray, but I wouldn't recommend experimenting w/your brakes. Much better to use a tried and proven product.

I agree , if I can't find something specifically for this application then I will just go ahead and bend over and buy the stuff through GM.

This has nothing to do with the OP's problem, but I have used plain old wheel bearing grease smeared onto the backs of pads for decades, to prevent squeal. The formulation of wheel bearing grease makes it hunker down and stay put when it gets hot, so there's no problem with it running onto the pad working surface or the rotor. It's also cheap, just like me.

I've been using NAPA's Disc Brake Quiet for years with good results. First thing I do before raising the vehicle on my lift is to set the pads on the up-side down box and spray the crap out of them. I set up my vehicle and go back and hit the pads again. No Squeaks. I use Anti-Seize on the pins and retainers and also on the wheel studs.
