Hello I’m changing out wheel studs on my 14 Kia Sorento and I’m having a hard time getting the 2 18 mm bolts off to remove the caliper bracket. Anyone have a budget friendly recommendation?
I could use a breaker bar etc.. but I’m looking to get a drill anyway

As much as I am a proponent electric drills I am sure you would be better off with an electric impact gun if air is not an option. I may be wrong but I don't think a drill will have the torque from the start.
If I am wrong then please forgive me this is not a set in stone statement.
I am more of a air tool guy and even then I have run into nuts and bolts that were very stubborn.

Using Dewalt DCF899 but sometimes it's dangerous and you can easily strip a head of screw if you do not feel that screw is really stuck in hole :cautious:
