View Full Version : Help with Baer brake rubbing issue!!!

12-20-11, 05:16 PM
Just bought the baer alumapro brake kit for my 07 escalade. Installed it this weekend and noticed that the rotors rub against the plates they sit in. This only happens when I turn and it only happens in the rear. Don't know what these plates are called but if you take off the rotors u see them. I called Baer and they said take em off. Really??? They look like they protect something. Trim them? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

This is not uncommon to have to trim the backing plates to fit larger calipers, of course it's much easier to do when installing the brakes, but can be done after the fact

we removed the brake dust shields completely when we put our Wilwood kit on our ride. Not sure if that is where your problem lies..
