Hi everyone!

Been having an issue with Rear wheel dragging with the brake pads not sitting straight!

I have just changed the piston and the seals in the caliper because the were seized and worn out.

If I loosen up the axle nut the wheel moves freely with the caliper on, once I tighten the nut to the right torque amount the wheel drags a lot. Since I changed the piston I know its all the way down and flush with the caliper at the moment.

As you can see on the picture the pad isn't sitting straight with the axle nut tightened up! I'm just wondering if anyone else had this issue before? Any advice would be great thanks!

in your picture, that caliper support bracket looks bent, maybe it's not but in the pic it looks like it's twisted towards the wheel at the bottom of the bracket
