Default Do you grease your brembo brake pistons?

I replaced my brakes at about 120K, previously mechanic did it at 60K.

While doing this, is it needed to pull the brake boot back and grease the pistons? I can't seem to find any threads about greasing the brake pistons for brembo brakes...

seems like the only things i can find are wrx owners and greasing sliders... and other makes and models pulling their piston boot back and greasing the pistons.

Nope. Even with a caliper rebuild you don't put grease on the pistons. There's an assembly lube for it but it's not "grease". Just swap your pads and go on your way.

thanks josh! good to know! i watched a rebuild video and they just lightly coated it with brake fluid for reassembly. i can only imagine the damage i couldve done if i had shoved grease in there.
