I purchased the SN95 brake bracket from North Racecars as well sourcing the calipers/rotors/pads and making sure they were the GT/V6 variant. I've been attempting to mount the caliper to the bracket but when trying to do so I barely get the bolt into the caliper's bracket before it gets caught on the rotor, as can be seen in the picture. I've looked through the How-To article many times as well as looking through other help threads and pictures but it seems I'm putting it together correctly to me. If anyone knows what I'm doing incorrectly, has any ideas or can spot what I'm missing that would be great. Any help is appreciated. 20200831_142949.jpg

get outta my way, I'm falling!
first you need to center the caliper to the rotor then add spacers between the sn95 bracket and the axle / adapter bracket.

+1. I used the factory Mustang brackets modified as several here showed how to do. I still had to shim one by .060 and the other by .120. Plenty of length in the factory bolt and perfectly centered now. Looks like your aftermarket brackets will need thicker spacers. Once established , you could tack ( or fully) weld the spacers in place.
