Bob, re-read.  Spacers are needed to move the carrier inboard.  Using a
5ktq rotor may delete the need for the spacers (I will try and verify it
this week, since I did a 5-bolt conversion on my 90Q struts).

I have seen some redrilled (5lug to 4lug) rotors and I would personally
rather use the spacers...
