I used an over sized caliper bolt from Autozone and all is well
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.

I put original steering knuckles back on my truck, because some one put knuckles from a 1992 something and it has destroyed 4 sets of tires in 4 years. This truck has cost me $$$. All I want is a new knuckle!!!!!!!!

Brake Caliper Mounting Bolts found to be loose and would not tighten properly. Mechanic found this to be a common problem on Dakota's. Repair was to use oversize self tapping bolts with Loctite for a one time fix and installed new brake pads.
