Brake Caliper Bracket Bolts

Good Afternoon!

I'm having a problem with my front passenger side caliper bracket bolts coming loose. My wife reported hearing a banging under the Jeep, few hours later the caliper had come right off with the bolt missing and damaging the rim. I replaced the bolts and figured it would be fine. Few days later both top and bottom bolts had come loose again when I checked it... so this time I used blue Lockthread on both bolts. Today she reported hearing the noise again... told her to park it and just leave it be. What is making these dam things come loose...?

tldr: Caliper Bracket Bolts are coming loose.

you might want to check the threading in the caliper its self... if they keep working their way out even with threadlocker it might be striped in the caliper. where in milwaukee are you? i stay over by southridge and work at in west allis at a shop by state fair park.
