2) what is the size of the bolts that are used to hold the caliper bracket that needs to be removed to get the rotors off?

3) What is your preferred grease for the pad ears (The sliding metal/metal contact points between pads and caliper, I used to apply a thin layer of aluminum anti-seize (Permatex
81343) with good results)

4) Do you use something like Disk break quiet between pad and caliper mating surfaces to glue them on? Or is it preferential to use a grease of sorts (On saabs I always used disc break quiet with excellent results)

Thanks all.
1/3.) I just used whatever antiseize I had in the garage. Probably had 4 different types lol.

4.) I just used the normal CRC brake grease that you can get at any auto parts store on both the focus and the Evo. Useless on cars at the track though, that stuff burns up at those temps.
