I am trying to get the caliper off to change out the rotor. I got the two bolts off on the passenger side, but the drivers side wont budge. I sprayed a ton of WD40 on them. Already cracked two craftsman sockets. Anyone have any tips.

I decided to use the mechanic with the lift down the street. He struggled with the bolts even with the car up on a lift. Sucks that I had to do that since it takes about 10 minutes to change the rotor and pads once the caliper is off. Oh well.

I had the same problem, I soaked the bolts with PB blaster. I used 6pt socket with 1/2 inch driver and an extension bar. To get clearance with an extension bar / pipe, I hopped into the car and turned the steering wheel right til it locked. Now you aren't restricted by the wheel well. I had to press hard to get that bolt undone. Becareful not to damage your fender.
