Default Caliper bolts F/R

I need the four that hold the caliper together. Rears are M10 1.25 18mm flanged head, 10mm diameter bolt 65mm. If anyone has any laying around I値l take them or knows where I can buy them. Fastnel doesn稚 sell them. I found a company in California but I have to buy 100. That my last resort. Thanks all

If you can't get them locally at AutoZone (or Home Depot?) Then rock auto will probably have them

Sorry about that... I was reading it on my phone and I didn't notice you want the bolts that close the calipers. I just painted the heads on mine yesterday. If you can't find a generic replacement at Home Depot, you may have to hit up the dealership. I thought I remember a thread here where someone bought a few of them from the dealership.

Good luck

McMaster-Carr has something similar in 60 and 70mm lengths. Mabe as a last resort you can get a 70 and trim off 5mm. I'm not that brave personally, but it's an option.

I bought the McMaster 60mm for a last resort. I found the bolts but I have to buy 100 or 8 bolts for 100 bucks. My worry is clamping force of the McMaster bolts. I知 tracking the car, if it was only street driven I wouldn稚 worry about it.

Everything is the same besides the flanged head and length.

Try Pro Bolt. I used them for my motorcycle when I installed the Brembo calipers.

Look at the top of the bolt heads for marks indicating the grade of the bolt. If the grades are the same, you're good to go.

Tensile strength is half that of the oem bolt.

Elmo,

I'm headed up to the dealership a little later this morning. I rounded the caliper mounting bolts up front more than I'd have liked, so I'm sourcing a couple extra. I'll ask about these bolts as well while I'm there.

As expected, I can confirm the dealer only sells those bolts as part of the caliper assembly.
