|EazyDuzIt102||The feel of the pedal didnt really change. I havent pulled everything completely apart yet but I was thinking maybe wheel bearing too. Everything in this conversion kit was brand new from the box. This was the first time driving the car with these brakes|

I am also thinking wheel bearing!!!!!!!!!
I had a car once doing something very similar and when I got the car stopped and started checking things I could figure out what was going on a first.
Did you still have plenty of brake petal when this happened of did it go to the floor?

How about the wheel bearing? if it was all mounted properly and wasn't hitting when installed maybe the rotor is what has moved and not the caliper?

take it apart
It looks like the caliper bracket bolt does not align with the casting, Did a bolt shear off?

Maybe the caliper bracket was installed wrong or not torqued properly.
Looks bent or out of alignment.
After you check the drivers side then look at the passenger side too!

Why did this happen?
Ok I was driving my Impala last week after having a front power disc brake conversion installed. While I was driving going about 60mph, the car suddenly jerked to the left and pulled me into the lane next to me. I lost complete control of the car and luckily I was able to get the car off the road without hurting myself or someone else. After taking a look at the driver side brakes I seen brake fluid running down the back of the rotor and also noticed that there are some parts of the brake that is rubbing on the rotor that shouldnt be. I hope its easy to see in the pictures but my question is, how did this happen because I have never seen this?
