Wholy tight Caliper Bolts Batman!

So yeah, yesterday i tried removing my calipers so i could take my rotors to get turned.. and um, needless to say.. i couldn't even break the bolts loose with my breaker bar!

Whats the deal? I shouldn't need my impact gun to break my caliper bolts!

Anyone else ever had this problem with their pro-roc 60 calipers?

PS, they're still on the truck because i didn't have my c02 or compressor with me at the location i was.

I have PB blaster on the bolts and im hitting them everyday until i can attack the bolts again.

Does anyone know on the Dynatrac Pro Roc 60, if you can pull the rotor off by just taking the caliper off? or do you have to yank the whole hub assembly with bearings and all?

Just got off the phone again with Dynatrac. Al over there said the rotor comes off after the caliper is removed. That's good.

You'd better eat your Wheaties. When I did mine, I think I put a box wrench on the bolt and gave it a quick whack with a 2-3 pounder. If not a box wrench, then it was a 1/2 drive ratchet socket (hey, the wrench has a lifetime warrantee). They broke loose no problem.

rotors

I wish you could take the rotors off that easy . The hub has to come off. Al must have misunderstood you.

Yeah i called back and he said he was going to research his paper work and get back to me. He never did. Thankfully i didn't need to pull the rotors this weekend, but it's good to know down the road.
