Default Re: stripped and broken bolts on rear brakes, what now?

Thanks for the reply. I didn't have a craftsman 10mm so I used one from the parts store, which split and rounded the bolt head. The part that I'm talking about is what the caliper bracket bolts to, and also is attached to the strut, sway bar, etc.

Edit: I've always had problems getting access to that upper caliper bolt. It usually involves a combination of extensions and adapters to get around the bottom of the strut, which I can't imagine helps things in the not-rounding-off-bolts department. Does anyone have a hot tip for that? Could I grind off the extra material?
