I recently bought new hex bolts for my wheel cylinder. I tried installing them last night and the wheel cylinder goes on a slant. By slant I mean the bottom sucks in and the top pushes out. Is their something that I can buy to make these bolts work. I checked with the car dealers they told me they dont make them that it is a junkyard part. The other one said he has something close to it and they were 2 dollars a bolt. Thanks for any help.

Use a 12 point socket to tighten those screws

I don't know if you know or not but the silver one is the new one. I even took a clamp an tightened it down and tried tightning it it still didnt work. The black ones were the old ones.
