It's normal for the front calipers to drag a little after you take off the front wheel, at least all of my bikes have, once you get the spacers on the right way, bleed off a little brake fluid out of each side and try too push the pads back in a little, next time go to a home improvement store and get some small tapered wooden dowls and use them to hold the pads back in the calipers while the wheel is off, Also take notes, the spacers would appear to be differnt sizes so something like long=right or short=left will keep you from making that mistake again, unless you warped a disc or otherwise caused some damage, everything should work out fine, You might also try bleeding the front brakes to exercise the caliper pistons, if your going to work on your own bike, you really need to PAY ATTENTION to what your doing. and buy some good tools, I wouldn't bother with the pot-metal junk in the tool kit unless your on a BMW, their stock tools are first rate.
