I have used AGS Sil-Glyde Brake Lubricant. Works great.

I used the little red packs of niglube that came with the oem pads for the rears and permatex high temp silicone lube for the fronts from amazon. Trying to see which holds up better.

I've heard others say on nasioc that Neo HP 800 wheel bearing grease is 'da bomb as a replacement for the molykote (but not necessarily for the red niglube). I got a pound can in a couple days from stockcarproducts.com Others were saying to buy from bakerprecision.com which I did order from a couple months ago but I never received anything and they didn't return my phone calls.

I'm not completely sure, but I think the niglube and related lubes are 'compatible' with brake fluid, since it's also used inside the piston boot. The molykote and others maybe aren't great in brake fluid contact but can take heat and pressure better? Not sure...
