W123 Brake Pad Paste/Plate

Time to do my brakes and I have a new set of Jurid thin backing plates that go behind the pad. Could someone tell me whether or not I still use the brake pad grease and if so, where does it go?

Use it on every set of brakes. It's cheap insurance against chattering and squealing.

You can buy it in a large tube, too, which is a lot cheaper than the little packets. It's a lifetime supply, but it's nice to have it around when you need it.
