Yes, this is a common occurrence because they made them too small!!! Go to napa or other automotive store and ask for a thread repair kit for the caliper slide bolt. They sell the 7mm bolt replacement thread kit just for this application because it is so common.Good luck to you.Ken

There should never be short cuts taken when dealing with the braking system. Its much safer and time consuming to buy a new bracket and caliper.

Brake caliper

Did you try to thread it back in with caliper out of the way? Sometimes the caliper is just a hair out of it's proper position, and will cause that, which is probably a good thing, so it doesn't get re-assembled incorrectly. If one of the bolts will thread in without caliper on, I'd double check my assembly position, otherwise use good bolt to determine whether threads on spindle are bad, or on bolt that came out. You may need to run a tap through it, or a thread chaser.
