I have recently changed my pads, rotors, and brake lines. I was wondering what kind of torque wrench u guys use when torquing the bolts that mount caliper onto the caliper bracket. I have one but I don't have enough clearance.

If your really wanna use a torque wrench i would recommend an in/lb 3/8 drive torque wrench. I never torque to spec caliper slide pin bolts at work tho, just nice and snug is good enough. You should have enough clearance though if you turn the wheel in the right position and so on for the other side if its the front
You can usually pick up TQ wrenches from any local area hardware store (Harbor Freight). Make sure you get the 3/8 drive, ft/lbs, click type (and get the insurance if they have it, reason being if you drop a TQ wrench it will mess up it's dial values). Ranges vary from TQ wrench to TQ wrench, check your appropriate manual for TQ values and buy your wrench accordingly
