I know that if you get a 13 sided regular socket it may take it off. Cheaper than one of those E sockets. I don't know what size they are, I've only had HO 91-s and newer. Not much help but a little

On the caliper? I have only seen a 7mm allen on your 88 era XJ. The later used a 13mm hex head bolt.

Pic?
