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!

Torx? Weird, I'd go into a hardware store and get a GRADE 8 bolt that matches up with the length and thread pitch. Grade 8 is automotive grade and much stronger than standard bolts used for building materials.

When changing out brake pads on my 99* silverado 1500 two wheel, Do i need to renove both the torx bolts and or the regular head shaped bolts to remove the old pads? I have not had sucess loosening the...


Normally it is just the Torx head bolts that need to be removed in order to replace the pads, but I have seen them so badly rusted that I have had to torch them out, and replace with new Torx slider pins and caliper bushings. The cause is lack of service. Those pins need to be removed periodically to be cleaned, re-lubricated, and re-installed to prevent seizing.

Hi, All you need is the lower Torx T55 is the only one you need to get out, then the entire caliper just swings up to where you can work on it. The upper one (that the leaf springs block) only has to be removed if you're replacing the caliper, and in that case unbolt the 2 hex head bolts and remove the entire assembly.

2002 silverado 2500HD rear brake question????


You'll need a T-55 torx bit to remove the rear caliper pins/bolts. You can try using an insert style bit...one that removes from the socket or perhaps purchase a replacement bit (one that would be used in a cordless drill/driver.) The one I used had a 5/16" hex shank. Like you said, there is very little clearance between the head and the leaf springs, which won't allow room for a breaker bar and torx bit. So using a 5/16" wrench, ( I'd recommend a 6 point box wrench to prevent slipping or rounding off.) I was able to loosen the bolt. Or plan B is to remove the caliper mounting bracket which is held on by two 21 or 22 mm hex head bolts. Which would have to be removed to remove the brake rotor.

Brake caliper removal


Sometimes they use a T-50 torx bit, and sometimes they use either a 15mm or 18mm bolt, however the caliper bracket is a 21mm bolt
