I have shiney new brakes...

Yes I do. And I'm shocked at how easy it is to put on new pads and rotors. Yeah, I needed rotors (am I spelling that right?) The pads were.. um...... gone. Dang it started making this cat in a wringer noise and finally Cain said that there was no way I could be driving around that way.

I'm amazed though. Took less than an hour and my jeep actually STOPS!!!!!! AMAZING!

Carry on.

so you removed all the rust build up on the hub, (little anti seize on rotor seat is a good idea) cleaned the pad seats, cleaned and lubed the guidpins with grease designed for disc brakes, and cleaned the protective film off the brake rotors?

just givin you a hard time, but anyone can slap pads and rotors on, but it does require a little effort to do a good job.

and they won't be shiny tomorrow

some pads also need a little synthetic brake lube on the back of the pads.

lots of opinions on that kind of stuff, personally, i hate lubes anywhere besides guide pins cuz inevitably people slobber it somewhere else on accident, and it gets hot, and thin, and gets into the brake materials. people lube the pad seats, and it always gets on the rotor, causing squeaks and such. i use a tiny bit of anti seize around the hub after i hit it with the die grinder, and then i wipe it off so just enough stays on the hub. just my input, i've done it once or twice

Pretty sure Cain knows what he's doing, being that he's ASE certified and I trust him. And you'd be surprised how shiney they stay in SoCal. Rust isn't something you see that much of.

I'm just dang happy the jeep stops now.

I just like to put a tiny on the back and then lube the pins.

Hmmm... Can you back that up with a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin)? In the days before pads came supplied with shims there were quite a few "Squeaky" brakes out there due to a harmonic resonance emitted from the caliper as the pads vibrated inside them during braking.

I would be interested in learning more about the synthetic lube on the back of the pad. 'Been changing brake pads for now on 20 years, and never had the notion to put lubrication anyplace where it could possibly leach onto the pad material and cause a "non-friction" condition.

And you would be well advised of such!

^right on ccain on both points, like i already said, people tend to put lube in places it shouldn't be, even the disc brake lubes get thinner when hot, and it goes toward the heat. i only lube the guide pins, and "renew" all other surfaces.

Well There were a few cars i've done where it stated right on the box to put a little lube where the pad contacts the caliper. I don't remember what car it was. You seem to think i mean to slober it all over the back. I just mean a little dab where it touches.

^sure, you use a paint roller to apply it don't you

aftermarket pads i've seen that on the box, but i never do it, probably trying to avoid squeaks cuz the pad is made to a lesser tolerance or some junk. never put on from the factory.
