    Default Is it 7mm hex

    Is the caliper bolts 7mm hex to remove the pads on front as an going to have to buy one due to kits don't have 7mm hex bits looking at getting one with a 1/2 drive use with wrench much easier than a normal key

    That's what you need. And because you'll never need it for anything else you'll never remember where you saw it last!
