V6 Brake Caliper Bolts

It's time to replace my brake pads again. Last time, i ordered what i thought were the correct brake caliper bolts, but they seemed to be either for the SS or ZL1. I checked RockAuto, but they only show the front brake caliper bolts, no rears. Are the front and rear caliper bolts the same size?

The mounting bracket bolts? I'm fairly certain that they're the same, but don't quote me. I looked through my chilton manual, and it doesn't give exact specifications on the bolts, but rather the torque specs (and they're the same for front and back mounting bracket bolts)

Here’s the part number for a V6 rear: 89027183. If you paste the part number in Rock Auto’s search field, they do stock them for $7.69.

Those are the caliper slide pin bolts rather than the mounting bracket bolts. A lot of guys get those confused, including yours truly.

Sorry for the confusion. I'm looking for the caliper bracket bolts. I'm pretty sure the rear bolts are the same as the fronts as well. Thanks everyone

Caliper bracket bolts are the same front and rear. I priced them out at the dealer and was quoted around $20 each lolol so I just used Loc-tite and a grunt or two and so far so good - been a year and the brakes haven't fallen off yet.

That's $20 per bolt, so $160 for all four corners

Can't believe dealers are allowed to charge what they do for some parts - I was quote $300 (plus tax) for one headlight (RS) bulb! If you priced out the whole car at dealer prices these cars would cost you half a mill.

Those guys must be out their ever loving minds for charging $20/bolt.

I think Dorman 14947 will work. About $7 a pair at Autozone, Advance Auto.
