Dodge Dakota Repair Kit Available if Front Brake Caliper Bolt Threads Strip

(37 reports)

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.

the passenger side steering knuckle om my 1999 dakota has striped also can you tell me where to find a repair kit and what the price will be. -
Passenger side caliper pin broke off,(lower pin) then stripped out. Busted the brake line where it mounts on caliper. Used the helicoil kit. I have been going down this road for quite a while. I'm on my 3rd helicoil, 8th pin, and 3rd brake line. This design is terrible, and because of it, my steering knuckle is in need of being replaced. Good luck finding one that you don't have to sell your other car to be able to afford. This has not been fixed. -
