Dragging front brake

The front caliper on my friends 01 keeps bending the caliper slider bolt causing the brake to drag. He also put on the larger rotor.

It wouldn't be so bad but we can't get spare bolts. The dealer says only one of them is available and that isn't the one that bends.

Right now we take it off, put it in a lathe and tap it until it's true again. We did finally make a spare so they could be swapped out.

Are we the only ones with this problem, If not where can we buy better pins. Any thoughts.
