Hey guys. So to make a long story short, the bleeder screw on my passenger side front caliper broke off. No leaking, just sheared it off. I had to get a new caliper which sucked. But what I couldn't figure out is how it happened. They don't just break off driving down the freeway. But what I did find was a dent/notch on my coil springs, on both sides. I have an 04 Access cab 4wd running donahoe coilovers and total chaos UCA's with 285/75/16's. I've got almost 100K miles and the shocks were put on at around 40-50K. Factory shocks and struts are much skinnier at the bottom (only the strut) but with the coilovers the spring goes all the way to the bottom and maybe in some weird configuration is causing the bleeder to hit the spring. I don't do any serious off-roading and my truck has never seen air time. Has anyone seen or heard of this before? Any solutions? Over $100 for a new caliper each time is going to get really old, really fast. Thanks
