Default Front caliper bolts will not come out

Trying to take off the front right caliper on my 92. I got the two star headed caliper bolts loose, but they only came so far and now they just turn and turn and won't come out.

I think that brake may have been dragging / stuck caliper.

Any ideas?

Use some pliers or something to pull the bolts out.

I concur. I don't think those bolts are supposed to thread all the way out, you might have to wiggle the caliper while pulling on the bolts with vise grips or something.
