None. Buy 3m silicone paste and then either the m77 or crc silaramic if you need some with solids.

Here is the direct link to the Permatex website showing the brake lubes. I'm only seeing two different lubes and a 'brake quiet'
Permatex Brake Lubes
From the descriptions it seems the Extreme might be a higher end formula where as the Ultra is their 'normal' formula?

Hopefully someone with experience using both can chime in

Get the GREEN Permatex Ultra. Awesome slide pin lube.

Agree, I've used the Ultra green for the slider pins before. Had a strong brake pull and rebuilt both calipers and replaced brake hoses to no avail. Bought new NAPA Total Eclipse calipers that solved the pull but now have a very loud squeak. I'll try the green lube on the hardware and piston/ rear pad contact points. Thanks.

I just did the brakes on my truck. I used the Green on the slide pins and the purple on the back of the pads. Works thus far with zero squeeks.

Now that I typed that, it will probably squeek.....

The best deal I found was buying the plastic can at AAP with online discount codes (stacking mrrebates on it too).

I used the green stuff on my Saturns back in the day, and wondered why I needed to service my brakes every 6 months until I realized the green stuff was swelling and ruining my slide bushings. The stuff is USELESS around rubber and it creates more headaches than it helps.

I have been using Sil Glyde ever since on any and every car I've touched and it works every time.

Would not use that green [censored] as long as I live anymore.

The other 2 types I have no experience with.

I never had luck with Permatex brake lube. I use Molykote M77 on the backs of the pads and either Sil-Glyde or Toyota red rubber grease on slide pins.

I too went through the headache of the green synthetic brake lube. I tried sil-glyde and and never looked back. It works great and is very versatile. I use anti-seize compound on the brake pad ears and backs, works well for me. No squeeks at all
