In most cases if the caliper is hitting the rim then something has to have shifted. If you are sure the caliper and anchor are tight then have a look at the wheel bearings to be sure they are tight and have no excessive play as well as the upper and lower ball joints. If everything is in place and tight there should be no reason you would have to grind the caliper.

None of the above. Took to garage One of the caliber bracket bolts was loose.

That would sure do it. That why I said, something must have shifted. A loose caliper bolt would sure all the anchor to shift. I also said if you are sure the caliper and anchor are tight .
