What happens if you don't use brake grease?

Keeping some brake grease or "anti-squeal" on the back of the pad metal keeps the metal to metal vibrations to a minimum. The action of the pad being pressed against the disk is what causes this, but the noise is transmitted to and amplified by the bare metal to metal contact of the caliper and brake pad back plate.

Is Lithium Grease good for brakes?

Lithium grease is typically not for high heat applications. Something designed to withstand high temps of brake systems you should use. A good anti-seize will do both, keep parts from seizing together and work as a brake lube.

Can you use anti seize on brake parts?

If you use it on caliper slides they will seize up and become frozen in place. If you use it to lubricate the pads they will also become stuck and not move properly. It won't take long either, just a couple of thousand miles before it will harden up.
