You've got the caliper anchored to the swingarm, so it want's to rise when you apply the brakes. To stop that you need a floating caliper setup just like the blue one pictured in this thread, where the torque arm is anchored to the fixed fork leg. The amount of dive or rise can be adjusted by altering the relative height of the anchor point in relation to the height of the caliper above the wheel spindle.
Not the best pic, but this is my sidecar leading link setup with floating calipers.

Cheers, Mick.
