RE: for sale 87 5cyl coupe

Perhaps the original poster was listing the rear disks and ABS as a
characteristic of a car for which it is difficult to find half shafts for
the front wheels ... and not that there are CV joints in the back.  I don't
know for sure, as I don't own an ABS-equipped Coupe with rear disks, but
that is what I presumed from the post ...
