So I'm in the middle of a 11.25" brake upgrade and I have the fronts mocked up, but it looks like at full turn, the bleeders are going to dig into the shocks:

The picture is not at full turn, but it hits and I image in could hit hard.


The part numbers for the calipers I have are SLC134 and SLC135 from Advance Auto and should be for a 85 Seville. Did I get the wrong Calipers or is there something I'm missing?

Yes I've read that, I was going off of http://www.fiero.nl/forum/A...120111-2-109042.html

It doesn't show the backs of the calipers installed though. I may end up just getting a set of Camaro calipers, though I thought I read they definitely wouldn't fit under 15" wheels.

To anyone who might come across this in the future, ended up with the Camaro calipers up front, they took some massaging with an angle grinder to fit in the bracket and to get the brake hose to fit. All four wheels took massaging on the top of the calipers to clear the wheels, some worse than others. The little square 'things' on the inside of the wheels hit. I decided to take the difference off the caliper due to it being cheaper to replace than the wheels. I think its the difference in casting of the wheels and calipers. I tried different wheels on the same caliper and some would hit more than others.
