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!
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.
