    Default Caliper mounting bolts

    Would you polish and copper ease these to aid caliper movement?
    I have on the rear brakes as well as copper easing greasing up the handbrake mechanism.

    Not that I copper ease everything you understand...just most things lol.

    I think you mean the sliders mate and yes they should be polished and copper greased. Do not apply copper grease to calliper mounting bolts (the ones on the carrier), only thread lock should be applied to these

    At the risk of splitting hairs we are both talking about the same part
    The caliper carrier mounting bolts are the thread locked ones.

    So many names for the same bit !
