Front brake pads stuck

On both sides the outboard pad is stuck bad. Inboard pad came out easy. On the other I've pried, whacked, etc and it doesn't budge. Any secrets?

You have pried the pads away from the rotor? Sometimes the lip on a worn rotor can keep the pad from coming out. Your pad/cylinder carrior may also be hung up. This should be taken apart and cleaned so it moves as intended.

What do you clean the seals with? What lubricant?

Lawrence, what seals do you mean? This is the first time I've touched the brakes on this car.

These are the seals on the pistons of the caliper. Mine are not sticking but I would like to know what to use to clean them. The pistons come right out quite easily. I'm sure SoCal knows.

Silicone lube. Make sure the brake pads are out of the way or you will have lubed pads. Degrease/clean the rotor with the carb/brake cleaner stuff. I've never had any problem with the rubber covers. In fact I've never had a sticking disk brake cylinder.

What I have found is the floating carrior to be rusted and some what reluctant to move back and forth as it should. Had the pads wear to a wedge shape on one wheel. Was taking it apart to do the bearings when I found the pads. Took the pads over to the belt gringer and reshaped them, put them back on and test drove the car. Took care of the bad bearing sounds. Obviously time to take it all apart and do some cleaning. Replace the rotors and pads too.

The outboard pad is secured by a lug on the sliding part of the caliper. What's happened is you are trying to force the pad out without levering the caliper slider away from the pad. Look at the new pads and you will see a rectangular hole in the pad..that's where the slider fits.
