Stripper Caliper Bracket Bolt
I was replacing my brakes today and my passenger side lower caliper bracket bolt is now stripped out. A year ago I had a shop replace my wheel bearing on that side (I was in a hurry). Knowing this shop, I'm sure they impacted the hell out of the bolt. I used a 25 inch breaker bar and it ended up stripping the bolt (6 point socket was used). I have a set of bolt extractors and they aren't working out too well. This bolt has to be on with a torque well over 150 ft/lbs.
So is there a way to get this bolt out or am I gonna have to get another spindle?
