Hello, the 2 bolts holding the caliper on are to be 14mm. I have checked a couple different sources and this is what it shows. In the shop? we generally do not keep track of each caliper bolt size. We can look at most any bolt head and know what size they are so.. I cant just say each and every size so I checked some vehicle info on my end and all info I find is 14mm . I am unsure of the size for the brake line. 14mm is about the same size at a 9/16"
