      My problem started with the passenger side bottom part of caliper bracket touching rotor to the point where it grinded in. My pads were still good so I changed the wheel bearing hub. After I went though he’ll getting it off and putting new one on it drove fine for about 20 miles then I noticed the top part of bracket is doing same thing. I looked at where the cv axle goes through hub and noticed it had broke the seal. I exchanged it but when putting on 2nd one I don’t know if I got the hub pushed in far enough. Cause the caliper is still touching rotor. I am stuck and don’t know if I bent a bracket or don’t have hub in all the way or if I messed up cv joint. Anybody have any ideas? Help!

        I’m not sure if the CV could cause this even if it was installed incorrectly. Can you take the bracket off and compare it to the other side? Pictures would help a ton if you can get them on here.

        You could try removing the caliper, then the bracket, then the rotor and reinstalling fresh in reverse order. Make sure everything goes in easy. If the hub sits flat on the knuckle I would bet the bracket is tweaked.

          Is the bracket the right way? Can it be flipped?

            I’m thinking either the bracket or knuckle is bent, or you don’t have the bracket on correctly. Was the vehicle in a collision or something?

            Keep us posted.

              ***UPDATE*** I took it apart and put back together. Bracket still grinds on rotor. I checked the knuckle and it’s not bent, the caliper bracket not bent, rotor not warped. I made sure that the knuckle, caliper and bracket, rotor and inside do rim has no rust or any dirt on it so that everything can sit flush. Then I noticed that it seems that the rim isn’t pushing the rotor flush to the wheel bearing. But I tighten the wheel lug nuts as tight as they will go. I looked inside the rim and saw and impression of what looks like a wheel spacer. But there wasn’t one there when I took the tire off. So I was thinking that maybe that since there isn’t one there that the rim can’t push the rotor flush on the bearing. Also couldn’t push the caliper piston in. I don’t know if it has been in an accident. Any new ideas? Please help!! Willing to try anything
