Problem replacing my brakes! Help
Okay, I ordered new brake pads for my 1974 Mustang and I got them and took the old ones off of my rotor which was worn quite a bit, but after the piston in the caliper was compressed all the way back down I could not get the caliper to fit on straight with the new pads in. I measured and only had a half inch of clearance. Why would there be such little clearance even with the worn rotors? If I had new rotors there would be no way in hell I could get the pads on.
Any ideas? Suggestions? If I just ordered new calipers, rotors and pads and installed everything new, would that take care of my problem?
