Did I crack trailing edge spar?

I'm replacing the brakes and tires on my plane and noticed this crack on the rear spar skin between the strut and fuselage. It's between what appears the bonded spar. Tap test was inconclusive but the other side sounded the same as does the other Jabiru in our hangar. It looks worse depending on the angle of the light. I attached pictures and have since added another jack to support the rear spar and put a piece of wood across the Jack's with foam to evenly lift the wing. Im unsure if the crack was already there or not prior to starting. Top of the wing is immaculate, and I would assume if lifting it caused this I'd see cracks elsewhere.

Hello LAJAB,

I wasn't able to view the pictures.  It gave a link which required a login. 

If possible could you attach the pictures directly to the forum.  The button is found just below where you write the text on the left.  

Thanks.
