So i haven't been on NAIOA in about 2 years im glad to be back!!! Well my problem is i have aftermarket slot n drilled rotors and when i installed i might have stripped the bolt patter on the Caliper itself. It now just keeps spinning and will not tighten fully. its causing braking to shake more and more as brakes wear out thus making me think rotors are now warped. Is there a way i can re-thread bolt inlet or should i just replace whole caliper?

I'd go with replacing the caliper.

Rebuilt calipers are pretty cheap and widely available, don't bother trying to tap new threads in your old one.

Holy Crap! You're actually DRIVING the car in that condition? Please, for your safety and the safety of others around you on the road, replace that caliper ASAP!!
