If the threads strip where the front brake caliper mounts to the steering knuckle, a steering knuckle repair kit is available. A new steering knuckle is not normally necessary.

caliper bolt holes on right steering knuckle stripped, looking for any help on this issue
breaks are 2 important to rig something just replace whole part.
bolt on front driver side of caliper will not tighten down was told by a repair shop the caliper needs replaced i still have this issue as i cant afford part right now
Hi.my 1991 dodge stealth had the same problem.i was missing the bottom bolt on the driver's side caliper mounting bracket.i took the caliper down to the auto parts store and right there at the counter I used their tap and die set for free.i went up one size.PROBLEM....the hole You have to go through to get to your new threads is to small.so I simply hand threaded a hard junk bolt of the same size threw the hole and back out.i then threaded my new bolt in place.yes it was a little more work but much cheaper.when you're doing this be sure to place a screwdriver(wedge)between the rotor and caliper to make a nice tight fit or it well gap causing you to start again.works great!
Striped bolt holes steering knuckle. Not fixed yet.
Driver and passenger brake caliper bolts stripped out,i put holie coiles in bother yet driver repeatedly strips out.every time brakes are applied front driver caliper scrapes rim and caliper together so puts a kit in the rim.put two different steering knuckles on driver side and still strips out somehow.
