Same problem. I promise you that the spacers are flipped around. I spent hours trying to figure it out. Ughhhh that's gotta be the only reason I assume

take your wheel off and swap your spacers sides put the right one in the left side and se if that fixes your problem.

also make sure your hanger is all the way in

On the spacers, In your picture the right side spacer has a lip on it.
the left side does not.
Find a parts fetch & see if thats the correct orientation.

your spacer is correct, I just put mine on last night and it looks exactly the same. If anything, it looks like it might be a little crooked, I would try loosening it up and making sure that everything is seated correctly and that it isn't cooked.

Also, I don't see brake pads in there, did you put them in? dumb question I'm sure. The pads compress that part back so it doesn't rub on the rotor, I think that is the issue, maybe the pads were not installed correctly.

How much torque you got on the axle nut? You might try backing it off 5 lbs or so.

Take a picture of your rotor so we can see the pads. Are you sure you didn't get both pads on one side of the rotor? It happens.
:huh: WTF? really???

Here is the IPB for your rear tire.

As it was mentioned before, it seems like you have the spacers installed correctly.

Take it all apart again and verify no bearings or seals were left off during your installation.
