No, not unless you open the lines for some reason.

Don't use lube on the pad brackets. The caliper slide pins need lube, but are generally fine as long as the rubber not is intact.

It might be needed.

You should open the bleeder screws before compressing the pads/cylinders back into the caliper. If you don't open the bleed screws you risk pushing dirty brake fluid back into the CAB aka ABS valve module. (Thanks Dennis!) Getting crud back in the CAB module can ruin your day.

When the bleeders are opened there is some risk of air intrusion so the fluid should be bled. If you choose not to open the bleeders, risk the CAB module, and just compress the brake pads back, then no bleeding is needed.

Check the power steering fluid, and turn the steering wheel lock to lock a few times. Double check the speed sensor.

it only shuddered when turning left. turning right was normal. I added about 1/3 quart of power steering fluid. still shuddered.
only after driving it through a bumpy parking lot, did shudder go away.

when wheels off, I didn't turn the engine, but rather just to acc iginition position to turn the steering full left to (for doing right breaks), and full right for doing left breaks.
