That's what happens when the bolts back off and get loose.

Nope they were good and tight, i even had red lock tight on them too . I'm guessing cheap metal or possible I hit it on something , but I don't see any scar marks on it so I'm leaning to cheap ...

That caliper uses banjo fittings. I did not use them. I used steel lines. There's enough flex for them to work.

Lug nuts. That's a condition us old men have. :lol: The caliper bolts are just to keep the caliper straight. The real stopping force should be applied to a lump of steel on the trailing arm up against the caliper. 8) Look at how they are mounted on a car. They never break on a car , right!
