suspension/clearance problems

I put on a conversion brake kit on my 1965 impala. when i set the car down driver side tire was hitting the lower tip of fender. Went to get an alignment . Had problems with that. Change out front suspension. went and had it aligned. Tire is still hitting tip of lower fender. Any thoughts.

Did you convert from drum to disk, comparing the L & R side what is the difference of the clearance? How much change was there over all in the fender spacing both sides ? Just a guess but you may be seeing the difference in the back spacing of a wheel that was made for drums and now on a disk hub. The 65 sheet metal could be off some and the closer the wheel is to the fender it becomes more obvious; highlighted; pronounce.
