Question about 2006 GMC Savana
What size are the two bolts holding the caliper in place, I tried T-50 socket and didnt fit
It's not actually a torx head, it's a hex head. I don't know if they changed the size since '96, but my '02 needed a 3/8" hex key (also known as an Allen wrench).
It's gonna be tough, I put the key in sideways so that forcing it down would rotate it counter-clockwise (keep in mind that the bolt faces the other way... don't want to inadvertently tighten it), then put my foot on the key, knee against the wheel well, and used my ankle to break it free. On the passenger side, because the brake line was in the way, I had to set the key so that forcing upwards would break it loose, then used a 2-foot length of pipe to get the torque advantage needed to break it free.
