The deal about replacing those bolts is not necessary. They are not stretched like head bolts. Just use the correct tap and die to clean the residual thread locker off, then clean it up with brake cleaner, let it dry and then use fresh red lock tite. Replacing the bolts after 3400 miles is ridiculous.
Its not mileage..its the removal and re-torque process..why take a chance for some bolts..these are your brakes
