I was on my way to Pittsburgh to see metal mulisha and i keep hearing a loud screeching noise from the rear breaks, thought maybe it was a worn down brake pad, So when i got home i looked and discovered that both of my brake caliber bolts fell out some point and time, it was 114 miles to Pittsburgh, and 114 back so i got lucky that the brake line didnt rip apart or the caliber didnt lock up the wheel, the only thing that keep it in place was the e-brake cable.

I would say go buy a lottery ticket, but you may have used up all your luck on that one.

So who's the guy that didn't tighten the rear caliper bolts? I'm guessing he's the same guy who replaced the rear brake pads/rotors last. That's a pretty serious mistake.

Very lucky
if you hear something weird you pull over asap and do a quick inspection.. Jus saying...You said that the person who sold you the car put new brake pads then you should of never assumed it wasa worn one Ppl are lucky sometimes but not all the time.

The bad thing was that i did pull over and check but it was in the dark, with no flash light.

Lottery ticket now. I've had my fenders rolled and they stripped my hub and the wheel fell off around a turn. Not fun...
