Chevy Suburban Brakes

I have a 2000 Chevy Suburban. There are two bolts which hold the front calipers in place. T55 Torx Head. Does any body know for sure if these are right hand thread or left hand thread. They are extremely tight, and I broke a Torx bit trying to loosen them. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Although I don't have a Suburban, never had any GM brake mounting bolts be anything but right-hand threads. Do remember having to put the torx bit on a breakover bar and carefully apply leg pressure to break the fastener loose; it pays to have high-quality tools at times like those!

Yes it was right hand. Needed to use an impact wrench. Thanks for the help.
