Question about installing akebono brake pads

This weekend I will be installing Akebono euro brake pads on my 2008 E92 328I.

My question is:

Should I use aftermarket anti-squeal (CRC Disc Brake Quiet)
or the Moly Brake lube that comes with the pads?

Both are good products, but if the pads came with anti squeal why not use the free stuff?

My concern is how CRC Disc Brake Quiet might react with the "attached noise insulators" used by Akebono on these pads.

I would perfer to use CRC Disc Brake Quiet because I have always used it in the past on my Corvette and been very happy with it.

The supplied Moly-lube is a very little amount.

I dont see anything wrong with CDC. Im sure others have used it before with no issues. Never seen someone on here that has had an issue with it any way.

Hi:

I used CRC with Akebono's on a 2004 325i front brake job back in April with no problems.

Thanks for everyones input.

This is what CRC has to say

Thank you for your interest in CRC products. We would recommend using Synthetic Brake Caliper Grease for your shimmed brake pads. Disc Brake Quiet is ment for usage on non-shimmed brake pads. The Brake Quiet's tackiness will cause the shimmed pad to not work properly. Addtionally the Synthetic Brake Grease will cut down on corrosion on the brakes.

I used the moly lube that came with the pads, It was a very very small amount but if your careful you can make it last.

1000 miles and no noise.

Thanks again.
