Some do and some don't. It depends on the fit between the starter and the block. If you take your starter off and there is some there, put them back in. If there is none don't put any in. You'll have to try it and see if they have to come out or stay. Hope this helps.

The loud click you are hearing is the solonoid kicking in, the is most probably a problem within the starte motor itself. after the solonoid kicks in the starter motors second stage should kick in and start turning the engine.

Starter noise during cranking and after the engine fires is often a result of too much or tool little distance between the starter pinion gear and the flywheel. A high pitched whine during cranking (before the engine fires) can be caused by the pinion and flywheel being too far apart. Likewise, a whine after the engine starts (as the key is released) is often a result of the pinion-flywheel relationship being too close. In both cases flywheel damage can occur. Shims are available in various sizes to properly adjust the starter on its mount. In order to check and adjust the shims, you will also need a flywheel turning tool, available at most auto parts stores.
If your vehicle's starter emits the type of noise previously described, follow the shimming procedure below:
