    Stripped Bolt

    Im working on my 1996 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 44 's brake caliper and the top bolt just stripped where the caliper connects to the steering knuckle. What would be the quickest and best solution to fixing this problem?

    This might be best moved to the. Cherokee technical area.


    I've never used heli-coils on brakes. I would replace the knuckle but that's me.
