I simply did the brakes on my 05" Silverado, and also the caliper bolts were a T55 Torx head bolt. Simply a little FYI if girlfriend don"t desire to reuse those rusty Torx head bolts, walk to the auto components store and also buy a new set that bolts. The will expense you $7.00 for a set of two, however they room a typical 3/4 bolt rather of the screwy torx bolt. We ended up replacing all of mine v the new style, and I am much happier with the new one"s.BTW- The Chevy dealers change the Torx bolts v the conventional one"s also.

Thanks for posting that. I was looking at the brakes ~ above the truck and saw the torx head. To be wondering around just replacing them with a conventional head. Torx room a pain. I have to pull 3 of them to replace wheel bearings in mine car. I have actually a full collection of torx sockets just because of the oddball areas GM made decision to usage them in the cars.

Not a problem, I in reality was digging through my pictures and also found the compare shots. We never ever would have actually known the they even made these replacement bolts, if it wasn"t for the fact that we had actually one piece out top top us. What a bad design on GM"s part, and as you said it is always in the worst location to have actually them too. Notice in the 2nd picture exactly how the brand-new bolts are slightly longer, that proved no difficulty in the installation but the male at the auto components store stated that if girlfriend had small clearance through aftermarket wheels you can have come grind the top of it down a small bit. An excellent luck v your brake job. :great:
