Question about 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited
If your going to go through all that, your better off replacing the pads. There not that expensive and most Auto parts places like Part Source or Auto Zone have a life time free replacement parts.
Just replace the pads and may be the rotors if they are damgaged or have worn marks on them. Take care of the ABS sensor not to misalign it or break the wire harness.
As for jacking up the car. Find a spot on the front frame clip to jack up the car and use a jack stand, a hydraulic jack has been know to fail and start to come down or fall over on it's side with cars being held up.
Never lube the break pads. = Very bad thing.
Good luck and hope this helps.

You can jack up the truck on either the pinch weld or better yet the frame you should definitely use a jack stand to insure safety even with the hydro jack. They are only a few buck and can keep the truck from falling damaging the truck or worse you. as far as the lube.on the caliper slides they make caliper grease that you can buy at any auto part supplier and you can use them on the saddle mounts (the part the brake pads slides on) also if these are newer pads suggest putting a 30 degree taper on the ends of the pads about a centimeter wide to allow for break in period. If these are older pads look at the wear bar on the pads.that is the little metal thing that lets you know when the pads are getting low so you don't end up going metal to metal thus destroying your rotors.it's cheaper to replace the pads than to replace pads and rotors. never put any lube on the pads where they meet the rotor.
