Need help quick

ok to start... i have replaced my front brake pads cause they were old... only to find out that the rotors are warped... in the time being the 2 bolt that hold the entire caliper assembly on come loose so that the calipers bounce around and make HORRIBLE noises...

well the last time that i took them off i put some bolt lock-tight on the bolts... this time one of the bolts completely came loose and fell out so now my caliper is hanging buy one bolt(u can imagine how bad that sounded driving)

but since i lock-tighted the other bolts i cant get them off

what i need to know is what exactly is the bolt that fits there so that i can get a replacement... Auto Zone didnt know it or have it.

this is my only car... i kinda need to get this fixed...

I had a similar deal. Precision tune got me fixed up on the lost bolt. i didn;t "buy" a bolt. i dropped off the truck and picked it up after repaired. if you can't get the bolt off, this may be your best option.

Got a propane torch ? Just heat the bolt heads up a bit (Don't try to get them cherry red , just hot). It loosens the lock-tite and they should come right out.
