So I decided I'm going to take the carrier to a machine shop since the bolt is stuck in there. Pretty sure it's not in the caliper, just the carrier. They can get the bolt out for me so I won't have...

I thought the guide pins hold the caliper to the carrier by screwing in?

Yeah I made sure because I almost started the wrong way. Now, I have the caliper back in the carrier and it can hold itself on, can I put the tire back on over so I can lift the other sides to check...

Learn something new everyday, huh? I didn't think a ratchet could break them like that at all. Especially without a lot of power behind it.

Since the guide pin is broken off on the inside, wouldn't I need to buy a caliper? Is there a way to get them out?

Okay so I got them out and figured out why they weren't coming. When trying to listen them, the screw part of the guide pin snapped. So I got them out but now I need new ones
