Default rear rotor install problem

Hi guys, i have switched out my rotors to stock replacement rotors from stoptech, i use the 8mm bolt plus lossen the e brake gear to remove the rear rotor.. after the install, i tighten the gear all the way where the parking brake is against the rotor, then go down 4 notches from that point to make sure there is clearence from the parking pad to the rotor.. here is the problem

Did i do anything wrong? or there are special things i have to look for when installing the rear rotors back on? because now i'm hearing clicking continously, and i'm kinda scare to drive. it only clicks when the wheel is rolling above 5mph i shall say. And one time my abs light came on as well.

Can anyone tell me what might be happening? i notice my ebrake handle in the cabin is also tighter, i might loosen couple of more notch tomorrow and take a look at it again

I would think that the clicking is probably the parking brake pad rubbing on the rotor. Usually when you work on the rotor with a parking brake, you tighten it and then loosen it until you can freely spin the rotor without resistance. At least that's the way with a Front Wheel Drive car. I haven't changed the rotors on a AWD car yet so not really sure.

I'm not exactly shure what you did.

Did you loosen the little ring with teeth behind the rotor? If so that is part of the ABS.

To remove the rear rotor all you need to do is take the wheel off then pull the rotor off (parking brake must be off). Sometimes they are stuck on there and you will need to use a bolt in the two threaded holes to push it out.
