I put a 9” in my 81 Malibu and did a disk brake conversion that utilizes stock calipers. I ordered wheels and the calipers are hitting (pretty hard) I ground them down some but it’s not going to be enough. Is there a brake caliper that will work to clear wheels I don’t know about? Aftermarket calipers? Other stock calipers?
 
How about a photo. What stock caliper are you referencing?
