Hi, even if the "disks" have stripped threads, its not actually the "disc" that the problem is with, its the hub/carrier thats behind the disc (unusual that its a one piece construction) that the problem will lie with.
If its alloy bolts (which are usually softer) then if your careful you should be able to clean the threads either with a correctly sized tap or if you use a steel bolt are carefully wind it in and out a couple of times the thread should clean up (unless very badly damaged) ....
worth a try before spending money on getting the hubs/carrier machined or replaced.
Hope it helps
Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
