The caliper is off, now I'm trying to remove the caliper mount bracket so I can replace the rotor. I have been beating on these two stuck bolts for 2 days now. Would they happen to be reverse threads?

No! They have locktite on the threads, either heat them with a tourch, being carful not to burn the ball joint dust boot, or use a long handle 1/2 drive ratchett wrench and use a quik slapping motion.

Thank you! The torch had to be applied twice, but they finally gave up the ghost with minimal wear and tear.
