Can anyone explain why the front requires more torque? Don't they use the same screws?

I ask because I over-torqued the rear screws and sheared one of them completely off.

Your front brakes provide more of your stopping force than the rears. Don't know if that has anything to do with it, but that'd be my guess as to why

Different size bolts. Fronts are M12, rears are M10.

Good to know... I better call ECS and cancel that order because the ones they have are M12x1.5x32.

Should the rear screws then be M10x1.5x32?

Check out realoem.com and look it up

Cool site, thanks Sil80m3!

Another question: I misread the DIY guide (again) and applied the anti-seize compound to the guide bolts instead of the collar screws. Should I wipe the guide bolts off while I'm replacing and applying anti-seize to the collar screws? If so, should I apply some other type of lubricant to the guide bolts instead?
