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).
