09 Boxster S - New Pads - Anti Squeal Grease?

Recommended Posts

Any particular grease or stop squeal special mojo you guys like for the backing plates?


Just picked up an 09 Boxster S with 15K miles and will be putting on EBC RedStuff pads all around.


I know they'll squeal where the compound meets the rotors for 500 miles or so but I'll suffer that vs the OEM dust. Just want to minimize the back plate / caliper pistion noises.


FWIW:  I got a PDK car and absolutely LOVE it! Shifts are SO fast and smooth! Of course the other 20K in options don't hurt the experience! Either someone wanted this car loaded up or it was one of the "Introductory" cars. I know that's not what they called the cars they sent to the dealers to introduce the new models (the word escapes me right now), but you know what I mean. 


They were loaded and mine is one of the color combinations they sent, Ruby Red Metallic with the lighter (tan?) brown interior, 19" Carrera II Wheels, Sport Chrono +, Extended Nav, Heated and Ventilated Seats, Rain Sensor and Automatic Wipers, Bose 10 Speaker Stereo, Bluetooth, Audio Interface, Dual 12 Way Power Seats, Headrest Crests, XM Radio....and a lot of little stuff I can't remember right now.....

We stay with a high temperature synthetic brake grease we get from Permatex called "Ultra Disc Brake Caliper Lube".  You only need a little, so don't go nuts with it.
