Itís been a while since the last update I started taking things apart last weekend and I just donít get through. I stated disassembling the caliper so that I could remove the rotor and inspect the hub for damage. However surprise was that the caliper bolt was already striped I have tried locking wrenches, also an impact gun with many sockets, and last I tried to file edges on the bolt to try and make a head to fit a 9mm instead of a 10mm and nothing the F-ing bolt wont move!!!!. So then I thought I could remove the entire brake assembly and hub by unbolting it from the A arm, but just my luck the gun stripped the last nut that connect the shaft to the differential. It hat been really frustrating trying to take thing apart, I really donít know where to go from this. Please advice here are some pictures of the wheel that was damaged and some shots of the caliper bolt and the shaft nut.

We have a couple open diff's. Have you tried hammering a smaller 12pt socket on it?

Not a 12pt specifically, but others yes. Ill give it a shot and see where that goes. I was considering torching the bolt.

Update, both the nut and the caliper bolt came out with some hits from a hammer and a chisel. After the caliper was out I removed the rotor just to find that the lower mounting bolt that holds the suspension arm to the the hub (dont know name) seems to have absorve the hit and bent, so the A arm along with the axle had to come out.

Here's picture

I already have a donor for the arm, now I need the axle, hub...ect.
