That'* a little weird to me as well. The same location twice, or same side twice? Make sure you don't have buggered up threads. Clean the hole out with brake cleaner, and make SURE you have nice clean threads with sharp edges.
As far as something looking more agressive, take a look at the Detailing and apperance, for a sticky at the top. Some dude
made a nice 'how to' on painting your calipers. The stock hardware is MORE than adequate, and with some red, look pretty sporty.
FYI, I run Rayestos Ceramics, and have had zero dusting. (Three different vehicles) If your still having dusting problems, I'm assuming you might be running a 'other' brand.
Paint 'em, you'll have performance and looks for a fraction of the cost.
