This question already has an answer here:
I am going to be doing my first full break job - rotors and pads as well as rear parking brake. I've been studying up on it.
The information pertaining to what anti-seize to use and where to use it appear to differ.
For example, one source made a note of saying not to use silver anti-seize but instead copper. Another used silver.
Also some people put the anti-seize on the ends and back of the break pad for lubrication as well as on the metal running that the break pad rests on in the caliper.
What anti-seize should be used? Where should it be used? Why?
