you are using the wrong bolts to bolt the calipers on the backing plate/ caliper mount , the proper ones are shorter and do not stick through and rub. look for the white paint on the head. the part about the caliper being out too far and the pads not making full contact is only if you are using something other than 4-stud ea-82 xt/car/wagon backing plates ,, the xt6 plates will cause this because they use a bigger rear rotor than the 4-stud ones on ea-82 vehicles, and i don't know about ej parts. but if you get backing plates from a 4-stud xt / car / wagon the calipers/ pad fit will be correct.

Something definitely isn't right, but we're just shooting in the dark....can you get some pictures of what you've got? then we might be able to tell if you've got the wrong parts, or maybe have them together wrong...
