Default What Lube for Caliper Pistons?

Hi all - Im doing a new rotor and pads install soon on rear brakes on my F4y. Ive got some brake cleaner spray to clean inside of caliper but Im reading
mixed views on greasing, lubing the piston once everything is clean.

So question is do I lube piston with Brake fluid, Silicone Grease?

Also is it necessary to use Copper Grease/Slip on back of pads and Caliper Pin?

Cheers

I just use Brake fluid, and I do use the Copper grease on the back of the pads , it stops the squealing

Thx Cabaret, will get some copper grease, so it just goes on back of brake pad where the piston touches it? Got some brake fluid so I can use that on piston. Cheers
