The bolts that hold the front caliper on my 94 look like standard allen-wrench type heads but a buddy of mine said GM uses some sort of special size. Is this true? Before I get into a brake job I want to make sure I have all the tools necessary. Long walk to the parts store.


Thanks in advance,
Stan

They sell the large allen wrench for the disc brakes at the parts store (autozone, napa, etc.) and I think there is a allen head socket available for this also. I have had my "brake" allen wrench for years and it has fit all my GM products (1979-80 Cutlasses,1989 4-wheel disc IROC, 1996 Capriceses)

...I paid 5 bucks for a 3/8" drive socket! Works great and is fast...!

Just go to Advance Auto (or wherever) and get an AmPro 3/8" hex bit socket for your 3/8" drive ratchet. It's part number T33621. S2 alloy steel, industrial quality, lifetime warranty. My allen wrench was a cheapo that started to round, so I got the AmPro. Only cost a few bucks.

I just bought one last Saturday at Pep Boy's for $2.99, it's a 3/8 inch.

I thought I had one but after searching this great forum, I knew what I needed
