Default Brake Slide Lube

Anybody have a recommendation for a specific slide lube that might prevent brake noise/chirping?

slider pin lube will prevent stuck slider, get some of the high temp ceramic lube for brakes. regular grease will harden and cake up

I use the red "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads and use CRC synthetic high temp caliper grease on the pins.

If you are talking about lube for the slide itself then Napa's sil-glide is probably the best. I use it on all makes and models for brake guides. Try that out.

Thanks! That was the last recommendation from my mechanic.....Although some guys on here have mentioned a possible bent axle.
