My tech had the same problem with rear calipers, he ended up breaking a one socket and 2 extension before getting it off. He ended up spraying it with some wd-40 or something similar and letting it sit while he finished up the other ones. Hopefully you have it on a lift as I'm sure it will help...good luck!

Heat the bolts enough to soften the threadlock.

Eh... You could do that but I would just use some kind of penetrating spray; Seafoam Deep Creep, or WD-40 or PB Blaster or anything similar. Let it sit for a few then it should break loose.

i would spray liquid wrench first and bang with a heavy hammer or the equivalent second to break the rust/corrosion. heating is secondary and always last resort, becasue i have seen instances where torching has expanded thread that bolts go in to.

I didn't mean to heat it red hot- just hot enough to break the loctite...

NO no bro, it's all good and you're right. My usual route would be:

try to open it.
bang on it to loosen rust/loctite
spray it
bang on it
heat it, as a last resort..
