Hopefully everyone on here knows that anytime you do any type of brake work that involves your touching the brake linings,or the brake rotor,or drums you need to thoroughly clean those parts with brake cleaner afterwards before installing the tire to remove any oils/grease your hands may have left behind if you want your brakes to function,and stop you properly......

Yup that is true... Sorry I didn't do a full DIY post.. but yes make sure you use brake kleen and an air hose to blow it off before using brakes, very important.

The service manual says to use multi-purpose grease on those seals.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
