Calipers keep working loose
Ok, I broke my calipers loose last weekend to check my brake pads. They were fine, so I put it all back together. Now, the driver side bolts that hold the caliper to the spindle are backing out. I originally tightened them down with just a normal ratchet, pulling nice and tight (no idea on ft/lbs). 400 miles later and I have a clunking noise coming from the front end. I found the caliper was loose. So I cranked them down again, pulling them as tight as I can. Drove probably 40 miles like that, and it sounds like it may be coming loose again.
Am I missing something here? I don't want to put a cheater bar on there and risk busting something. (You can tell I do this all the time, haha).
