To be honest, as it's still 12pt heads I wouldn't be too concerned just yet. It's not like somebody just grabbed whatever was laying around and pulled a handfull of 12pt bolts. Do the threads in either one look like they forced a course threaded bolt into a fine thread hole?

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.

Nope, threads in the bracket look good, both bolts are coarse thread (I've only taken the driver's side caliper off so I'm assuming I'll find the same thing on the passenger side.) The bolt looks exactly like the 12 pt fine thread; same length 40mm, diameter and require a 13mm socket. I'd assume if someone dorked up the threads they would have used a more common bolt.

I did not dig any up today. I can take some off a truck if you can not get some soon enough, but don't have any spares.
