I am not sure of the problem, I installed the kit and did have this problem. The instruction are not very detailed, this write-up may help:

One thing on the brackets, make sure they are pulled all the way towards the back of the car. I had the problem where the bracket rubbed on the rotor and if you notice the bracket holes are a little larger than the bolts so pull the bracket to up and back so they don't rub.

Once it's together it works pretty well the only issue I have is one side seems like it vibrates when I am on the brake, I asked CPP about this and the suggested turning the rotors even though they are new.
