I have a 2017 Touring with 57,000 miles and I’m replacing the front brake pads & rotors this weekend. I’ve done brakes twice before on a Ford Expedition 2008, so I kind of know what to do. Rear pads still have 50% so I’m waiting.
I bought Centric C-Tek rotors and Posi Quiet Pro Pads from RockAuto.

A couple of questions:
Should I bleed the brake fluid? Never done it but seems straightforward after reading stuff posted here & other forums.
If so do your recommend the gravity drain/ 2 person method or use a pump like the clerk at Advanced Auto showed me?

should I use anti seize on the back of the new rotor? Like Permatex

I am replacing the caliper pins and boots too. Is Permatex Ultra okay for lubricating them? It's readily available at Advanced

I will bed them after replacement per several posts I've read.

thanks for your feedback and any recommendations.

I am using Permatex but I can't remember the exact name. I recommend using it instead of regular grease. If I'm not mistaken, regular grease becomes "hard" over time.
