Is there any way to fix stripped caliper bolt holes on the steering knuckle and has anyone had any luck with the oversized caliper bolts?
No auto parts places around here sell them and the dumbass who tried to change the brakes before us stripped the caliper bolt holes totally. tried new bolts and the wouldn't tighten at all. Getting frustrated not being able to drive mt baby. GRRR
This is easy to fix using a "heli coil". Bring a bolt to the parts store to get the correct size. They come as a kit, a drill bit to remove the old threads, a tap for tapping new threads and the tool to install the heli coil. This fix is just as good as new.
Ended up getting a used steering knuckle, now trying to get alignment done. Should have done the heli coils instead lol. This is turning into a nightmare!
