9" rear disc brakes problems

Guys, I had a 9" fabbed for my 1966 has 5 X 4.75 wheel studs for the GM pattern. I bought the SSBC rear disc kit, and installed it. The disc brake caliper mounting bracket was very hard to get on...holes didn't align and had to be drilled out to fit. NOW, I have the problem where the pads are only contacting the outer half inch of the rotors, and I have a very hard brake pedal, even with four-wheel power discs. SSBC has offered no help. Do I have a wrong bracket for the rear end issue or what? Any advice is greatly appreciated, as I have no experience with 9' rears at all.
