I just put on a Currie 9" and I had them install Explorer Disc Brakes. My wheels interefere ever so slightly at the extreme corner of the caliper. I don't think this is the right thing to do, but one of my buddies said I should just grind on that corner a little.

I guess the question is: Is it ok to grind a caliper a little (1/8" or so)? I think this is a bad idea, but I have to ask because I really don't want to spend $$$ on another new set of rims.

I'd say your ok, You should see the DRASTIC amount of matierial we removed from the calipers on my dads f-250 4x4 so we could fit 15 inch rims. It'd scare the hell outta ya!
