The driverside rear caliper stops sliding when the mounting bolts are tightened.
I have repalced the bolts, slide pins and seals. The calipers slide easily until bolt starts to tighten.

Damage to caliper or trailing arm possible?

i've found that if you tighten to recommended torque they can go tight.

so i just do them up to 80Nm

thanks - that has been my solution for the last 2 sevices.
I will swap over the brackets but they are new parts in good condition.
I still think there is an underlying issue.
Could the caliper itself get twisted if it was in a knock or the rear trailing arm (bolt threads?)?

swapping brackets means pulling off the wheel bearing.

never had issue with going tight with bolts done to correct torque, under torque is not a wise idea, especially on brakes!!!
