The manual I have mentions putting some high temp grease on the points that the brake shoes contact the back plate. Would high temp anti-seize grease be good for that? I have some around, so it would be convenient. There should be a tube of caliper grease around, but the anti-seize surfaced up in the garage debris field. I was also wondering about putting some on the tips of the links where they contact the pistons on the wheel cylinders, but there was no mention of doing that in the manual. 

Thanks in advance!

No Mustangs at the moment.
Wheel bearing grease will do, if you have that laying around.

I do, thank you! It is the seldom used stuff that gets covered by debris.

Agreed, High temp wheel bearing grease will do the job.
