I've found that the Marks are particularly picky about the type of brake lubricant you use - anti-seize isn't technically even a lube. I'd use Sil-Glyde (which you can find at NAPA or Advance, typically) or the Permatex "Ceramic Extreme" lubricant.
Although my '94 is gone, I'm still the main caretaker of my father's 1997 Mark VIII LSC. The other night, I came home, and noticed the infamous EVAP tray's front edge dangling precariously... so, it looks like the Michigan salt assault has finally taken its toll.

I've been fighting a hard-starting condition on my '94 for a couple months now. First start of the day...
In both 4.6 motors that I've had experience with - the SOHC in my old Mustang, and our lovely DOHC - copper plugs have just felt good. The "butt dyno" approves, if you will. I personally prefer the NGK TR55, I've had great luck with them in my Mark thus far.
