Re: G60 brakes on an 85 4000q [was: 88 90q]
Okay, so then it is true or is it not that if I use strut housings from
an 88 90q (or non-q?), that the G60's will bolt up to my '85 4ksq?
I'm familiar with the post (from Ben Howell?) that's on Mark Chang's
website regarding the issue, but I thought it was disproved or
contested by someone else.
Is there final word? I have some G60's and brackets, from a 5k,
and I'd like to eventually put them on the 4ksq.
Sorry if this question is already known.
I have an idea, I'll host a FAQ. Does anyone want to let me know
what FAQ data they've got relevant to this list? I want to expand
my site a bit more.
BTW, if you want to sub to European Car or other magazines, you
can do so through my site now. I thought I'd give advertising it a
try, since I actually like the product (EC).
