[DML] Re: Specs on rear caliper bolts?

Hi Joe,

I went through this fairly recently, though I can't remember the size  
and don't have any spare bolts handy to verify.  IIRC, they are 5/16  
and 3/8 inch (four are different than the other 12) with a coarse  
thread pitch.  I don't recall the length.  (Wow, I'm a lot of help,  
aren't I?)  I've torn one of my cars down to a bare frame and these  
are the only non-metric bolts that I've come across.  I used 8.8 grade  
bolts for reassembly. As far as I know, there is no specific torque;  
"really tight" was suggested once, which did the trick.

Sorry for the lack of specifics, but if nothing else, at least you'll  
know which set of sockets to fetch when you go to dismantle them.
