If it's hitting the top of the caliper, and the caliper is a post mount type caliper (possibly with an IS adapter), then you can just use some very thin spacers between the caliper and adapter to space it up a bit.

mounted directly to the fork, theres 2 mounting brackets right on the fork for the bolts to go into holding the calipers. the brakes are Promax and thats about all I know, I am not sure of a model or anythingt, they came on my bike. the bike is a Mongoose Blackcomb if that helps any. I wish I knew more about the stuff. There is no adapter, the brakes are just bolted onto the fork using the 2 mounting holes that are on the fork its an RST fork.

I think I got it! I took the caliper assembly off the bike and put it back on, then I tried something else, i tightened my quick release one more turn it was really hard to lock, but after I did that the disc was not rubbing on the caliper anymore! now I just have to true the rotor some to get it from rubbing on the outter pad and I'm good to go!
