Sorry guys still trying to figure out my problem. I have a grinding noise when I rotate the rear wheel and have figured out that it is the caliper bolt rubbing on the brake rotor. I have an 05 LT and was wondering if someone else with an 05LT can verify something for me. There are 2 bolts which hold the rear caliper on. On mine the rear bolt has a shoulder instead of a washer and the other one (front) has a single washer on it. I can rig/fix the problem by adding another washer but I want it right. Is there another spacer missing or maybe it is just such a tight tolerance and my rotor is warped. Just trying to figure it out before I spend 8 hours back and forth to nearest dealer.
Thanks again guys. If anyone with an 05 would not mind me calling them and talking looking that would also be appreciated. PM me with a number. Thanks

Marc,

I know you're asking for someone with an '05 to reply . . . but IIRC all LTs from '02 to '06 have the exact same rear caliper and rotor. The bolts and washers you describe are exactly what I have on my '02. A shoulder'ed bolt to the rear, and a bolt w/ ONE washer toward the front. I took mine apart last Saturday morning, so I know for sure.
