    i just installed some spidertrax spacers on my first gen. and just got done taking a test drive. when i got back into the driveway i tested the fender clearance by turning the either direction with the brakes on and i heard a very noticeable creaking sound. does anyone know why its creaking and whats causing it? the sound is very noticeable and im almost positive it didnt do this before..could this be because of the spacers?

    also, in the instructions for the spacer install it said remove the rotor/drum retainer clips if present..what are these and what do they look like? could they be the cause? :confused:
