What pad mfg are you using. After many pad changes on quite a few vehicles, I've never had to modify a pad to make it fit.
Not sure how the mfg doesn't get it right. Too critical here.

Nothing wrong with your caliper assembly's? Maybe pitted from the salty roads?
Do you loosen the bleed screw when pulling the piston back to original position?
You've really got me thinking here!

Let me assure you I have totally disassembled these brakes and cleaned everything, but when I installed the pad in the mount I had to hit it with a hammer to get it back out...I have always used Warner brake pads and shoes, because I have found them to be higher quality...With that being said here is my diagnosis...For whatever reason the manufacturing process is making the metal plates that the pad is attached to oversize therefor it is too tight when inserted in the mount...I have informed my parts guy that I have had to modify these pads lately, and I am sure he will kick it up the food chain...That is my story and I'm sticken to it...
