Default Rotor rubbing against caliper bracket HELP!

Hey guys so im at a loss on my 2001 gt bullitt, just put all new brakes and calipers on it off of summit, SPECIFICALLY fitted for the mustang bullitt because my caliper bracket was rubbing on rotor, STILL THE SAME PROBLEM, i can physically see where its rubbing too and its on the drivers rear, only possible thing i can come up with is that the axle is bent or the bearing has play? Any help or advice please and thank you!

If the rotor side facing you is hitting the bracket, then the LH axle
is moving outward on right hand turns, or bearing to the right. This is
usually in the differential.

Put the back end up on blocks, and see if you can pull and push the
rear wheel in and out on that side.

A temp fix could mean the use of a washer between the bracket and the
mounting surface. Sandwiched between the bracket and mount.

8.8 rear ends have "C" clips and have very little to no axle end play, however shimming the caliper bracket could resolve your issue

how many miles do you have on the car?
