    It broke coming out it was the bolt that held the caliper to the axle not the two calipers together. I just said fuck it and rolled it to midas this morning the damage 400 bucks 10 % of what I paid for the truck. I would of had to drill out the bolt and tap the treads which wasn't going to happen. the guy said he might have to get a whole new bracket for in that case I am going to e out closer to 700. fml.

    I know it's done now, but how about one of those bolt remover gadgets that screw into a broken bolt?

    How did Midas do it? Weld something to it?
