15mm Spacers - grinding sound and brakes locking

    Hi all,

    Slight problem today hat I hope someone may be able to help with...

    I have a 2013 S5, with OEM 19" alloys, lowered with H&R OE springs (not the "Sports").

    Today I put 15mm spacers on the front wheels and when I took to drive off the brakes were fully locked on and I had to give it a fairly heavy right foot to get the brakes to release. I've now only driven it 30 metres as the front wheels are making a horrible grinding /scraping sound.

    Any ideas please?!

    How long are the bolts you have used for the spacers ?. I suspect they are too long and the bolts are catching on the hub. You may find the ends of the bolts are damaged so they may be difficult to remove.

    Oh good thought! I'll measure the bolts now. How long should they be? I'll have a look in the morning and see if I can see them sticking through.

    These are the spacers:
