I just did the brakes on mine 05" Silverado, and the caliper bolts were a T55 Torx head bolt. Just a small FYI if you don"t want to reuse those rusty Torx head bolts, walk to the auto components store and buy a brand-new set that bolts. The will expense you $7.00 for a collection of two, but they are a standard 3/4 bolt instead of that screwy torx bolt. We finished up replacing all of mine v the brand-new style, and I am lot happier v the brand-new one"s.BTW- The Chevy dealers replace the Torx bolts v the standard one"s also.

Thanks because that posting that. I was looking in ~ the brakes top top the truck and also saw the torx head. To be wondering about just replacing them with a standard head. Torx room a pain. I have to pull 3 of castle to replace wheel bearings in my car. I have actually a full set of torx sockets just due to the oddball areas GM chose to usage them in the cars.

Not a problem, I in reality was digging v my pictures and found the comparison shots. We never ever would have actually known that they also made this replacement bolts, if the wasn"t for the fact that we had one piece out ~ above us. What a bad architecture on GM"s part, and as you said it is constantly in the worst ar to have actually them too. Notification in the second picture how the new bolts space slightly longer, that proved no problem in the installation yet the guy at the auto components store stated that if you had small clearance with aftermarket wheels you could have to grind the top of it down a small bit. Good luck through your brake job. :great:
