I had the same issue as well, but shock body the other way, so eliminates that variable.

Used extension and moved the mount a little less than .250 and used a 90* fitting. No issues or rubbing.

I'm not familiar with Wilwood, I used a different brand. However the supplier was very specific about the setup being for staggered or non staggered shocks. Does this play any role in your issue?

I mounted the calipers 180 or opposite side of lower shock mount. you by chance have 2 rights, bleed valve is always at top

If this retrofit is based off a bolt on kit using original style suspension set up, the calipers are mounted the opposite side of shock with the brake bleeder at the top.

Hey bud. I know this is gonna be a bummer, but I did it too. Call Wilwood and explain it, they will send you the correct caliper bracket that puts its in front of the axle, so opposite of the shock. Same way the passenger side is set up. The bracket is like $43, and, they might "help you out" on the price a bit if you explain it humbly enough. Lol. It was this thread that prompted my call to them. I just got mine together, had the same issue, searched it, saw this thread, and called them today. Damn interwebs is really something, huh? Good luck.

Sean
