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?

I've seen 14" wheels on the front of stock Gbody stuff so if you have the factory stock front disc brakes, yea I'm wondering here.

Post some pics up.
