Default brake pad installation: what is the goop you smear on the pads?

What is that pasty goop that you smear on the back of brake pads when you replace them and do i have to buy that stuff separately at an auto supply shop before installing pads at home?

It is usually included in a small blister pack w/ a new set of pads. But you can buy it separately, in a tube. I don't remember what it's called, but any autoparts store should have it - the "blue anti-squeak stuff".

It's anti-squeal stuff. The best stuff I have used is the red goop from CRC. It's not the spray stuff, it's the orangish-red goopy stuff in a tube.

Yep. . .anti-squeal. Like legacy777 said. . the stuff in the orange bottle is the best. Been using it for a few years now and the stuff works great. Just remember that a little goes a long way.

Default Consider not

You might consider not using this stuff, it does tend to collect brake dust and generally gunk up the caliper. I just changed pads on an older 911 someone had used copious amounts of this on and it was like the whole caliper was dipped in silly putty. Yuk.

Done properly....it's not going to affect the caliper at all! you put a light coating on the backing of the pad, let it tack up, install pads.

The only place it touches the caliper is where the metal fingers are and the pistons themselves. I've NEVER had any instances of it causing any problems when used properly.

for track or autoX use, the goop will burn up. I have seen it smoking and at the track on fire. Best to leave it off if you brake hard.
