190e 16v front backing plates scrape the rotors on turns

Hi all:
Can someone help me with this? I installed bigger 1992 400E brakes on my 1987 190E 2.3-16v with all new rotors and pads. The calipers were all in great shape. Now, on sharp turns, the ball joints push the backing plates into the rotors. Did I do something wrong? I also installed the correct 400E backing plates so I know I'm fine there.

I just don't want to take everything apart for no reason so pelase let me know what I should do. Straighten or cut the backing plates? Replace suspension bushings?

Thanks in advance.
