Thanks for the feedback. I bought a set of 6800 calipers. prob change the pads.

Skydog and HillRider,I appreciate your thoughts.I had the spread checked by a mechanic. (am not to handy or knowledgeable enough to judge) ,suggested I go ahead and change. For what I could appreciate in the adjustment, cable was let out,particularly in back to allow for spread to max.but to tight. found myself physically juggling the caliper to allow the wheel rotation without contact. clearance prob ?thing one of you suggested ,could be the prob.
will try the 6800 and see what happens.
thanks again.
