Really need some help here with this problem.

Just purchased some Bomber Z4 Air forks for my Stumpjumper so took the Toras off and all the mounting bits for the HS33's

The actual brake post mounts are recessed into the fork leg so sit a lot further back than the Toras, which have a flat mounting surface.

I have taken a few pictures to explain better, just seems like there is no way on earth these are going to fit.

PLEASE HELP

Have you tried a stack of spacer washers?

What you need is the old mounting system - rather than the big arch it has a tab on each side, banana shaped to rest on the nisde of the forks. Should work a lot better than your current option.

I feel your pain though, my DMR still isn't finished as every last component is fighting me!
