Tried searching but couldn't find a thread with answers to this.
First time b-body owner (95 RMW). Pulled one of the caliper bolts out and when I went to tighten it back up it never got tight, just spun. Looks like I pulled the threads out when I took the bolt out.
What are you guys doing to fix this?
Junkyard spindle? Oversized doorman help caliper bolts that make their own new threads? Drill and tap for a larger sized factory bolt if that's a thing? Helicoil or timesert?

First time I heard of Time-sert. I looked them up, and they look like a much better product than helicoil.
