Lubing front caliper pins??

How in the world do you lube the front caliper pins ('05)? Don't want to tear the boot up... Is there a small nozzled grease gun you stick in there? For now, I just put a huge dab on the end of the caliper bolts and re-installed them.

Otherwise, a damn easy pad change.

Thanks, Bob

Just pull them out boots and all. Then grease them up good.

Yup. Just pop off the boots carefully, clean up everything nicely, grease em up and replace the boots. Nothing magically here.
