How about the same *idea* as the 4000q, not quite the same mechanicals. The
rear suspension is completely different, the rear hubs and CV's are Vw Fox
parts. The propshaft is a Quantum Synchro only app...etc. At least the motor
is an identical match to the q's JT code. The other 5cyl Quantum's from '85
up are KX codes.

I wouldn't be nearly so familiar with these things if I hadn't spent the last
day and a half underneath one!
