ccp brakes and Globalwest track bar issue

I have a 62 Impala that I have installed CCP big brake kit on the rear axle. Installed Global west track bar but the caliper touches the track bar. I called CCP and told them I have a clearance issue and asked if I could move the caliper from 2 clock position to the 9 clock position. They said no because the bleeder needs to be on top. I have a vaccum bleeder. Or I might be able to move it to the 4 position but there maybe clearance issue with the lower shock. I have the car on jacks right now. Waiting on the correct lug nuts for the rear tires. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Can you flip the caliper between the Left and Right sides and then put them into that other clocking position? That should keep the bleeder on top.

(I once installed a Jeep caliper on the wrong L/R side accidentally because I wasn't paying attention. They bolted right into place, just had the bleeder on the bottom!)

No the parking brake is on the inside of both calipers.

Do you see a issue if I take the one from the passenger side and put it on the drivers side and put it at about the 10 clock position. And then move the driver side caliper move it to the passenger side and put it on 2 clock position?

I flipped the calipers and found another issue I had been working on. The emergency brakes I couldn't get them to work. I found the cables twisted that run along the drive shaft and the x frame. Also found the cable that came out of the firewall going to the first pulley was routed wrong. Once these issues corrected they work great.
