Where'd ya get the wheel spacers?
The thing that got me thinking about this is the comment about being able to push the pistons in by hand instead using a C-clamp. I've always used the old pad and a C-clamp to push the piston back in. I've never been able opush one back by hand, doesnt seem possible to do that. But even still, with the rear rear brakes, nothing has helped them. I can replace everything back there, pads, rotors, calipers and get about a year out of them before the pads needs replaced, a real head scratcher....
