I initially took mine out when installing the Urge rotors.

I've since clearance these retainer clips for the rotors and reinstalled them.

Also, you do run about 1mm (or however thick that clip is) more inboard if you remove that retainer clip. Not that it matters.

Call the manufacturers directly for custom thicknesses. Carbotech, Cobalt, Raybestos, and G-Loc all have made rear pads for me now.
