    Trying to find the one bit that will fit the rear caliper carriers but nothing seems to fit. What size could it be?

    Found out what size after getting a spline bolt set it was a M14 spline 1/4" socket.

    Your telling me lol on one I made sure the M14 socket was right in and in tension on a ratchet then having to belt it with a rubber mallet. One of the others took all my strength pulling on the wheel arch while pushing the ratchet with my foot lol

    My 19" breaker bar made light work of those spline bolts. Although there's not a lot of room there, still easier than a ratchet haha
