The correct size is a T55, which is NOT included in the 3 bit brake set sold at Sears. Fortunately I got the larger set. A note to all you mechanics out there - brake caliper bolts do NOT need the tightness that only 3 gorillas can provide. Yes, they do need to be tight but not to the extent that one is breaking bits to free the bolt - and no, it was not due to rust. And why on earth are there torx head bolts on the Chevy anyway? I will go back to Ford if I ever get the chance!

I ran into a similar problem when working on the bolts that hold the 4 piston calipers together on my BMW 2002Tii, that the Torx was too small and rounding off the inside edges of the bolt head. Being unable to find a bit that was between the x5 and next size up x0 torx, I decided to consult an expert. After going to the service department of my local dealership and talking to some of the older and more knowledgeable guys, we determined that the easiest fix is to take a cheap torx bit and grind down the tip of it so the bit engages a little bit more, since the bit tapers towards the end this would give much more of a positive engagement. Worked great after 3 minutes on a belt sander.
