The lower caliper bolt in our 2000 dodge dakota has briken off inside of the cast-iron part that it screws into after passing through the caliper. We ahve tried every solution to remove it & have determined that we must dieconnect the ball joints and appempt to replace this part. The problem is that we don't know the name of it in order to buy a new one. Can you please help?

Also, if you have a wire feed welder and an acetylene torch, I have a trick that involves welding a nut to the broken part so you can unscrew it with a socket.
