Recently im doing brake pad replacement, along the way i noticed my piston boot is ripped so i had to get new calipers and some newI banjo bolt washers. One of the pack came in all black, not sure if its still okay to use or should i get new ones? also whats up with ford putting 7 in a pack when they know we need 8 to get the job done.....

Thanks, i used vinegar and salt to clean it up oxidation. Is it okay to use permatex copper anti seize lubricant on back of the brake pad? im seeing some mix thoughts on these. I watched chrisfix video on how to change your brake pad/caliper and he recommended permatex copper anti seize lube on back of the pad. Is this stuff safe with piston boot? When i apply it on back of the pad i cant help seeing it getting smeared on the piston boot. Should i wipe it off?

When I buy pads, they usually come with lube, and I use that. If they don’t come with lube, I use PTFE lube. However, I doubt there’s any great concern to worry about with the copper compound, but I haven’t ever used it or researched it myself.

Knowing how thoroughly you research this type of thing, I expect you will be the one to school ME :ROFLMAO:

Yea not sure why chrisfix or ericthecarguy would suggest this, it was bugging the hell out of me i end up jacking my car taking out the pad and caliper cleaned it all down after work. I get out pretty late after 10 and end up spending 3 hours working on it lol.
