RE: G60 brakes on an 85 4000q [was: 88 90q]

You're pretty close here. It was the later struts ('90 + I think) that used
the two piece housing. Any '88 and '89 will work (stay away from early, '88
4cyl. cars they are the same as the 4kq)

Ken's problems are because of the larger WB size (75mm OD) and there is not,
to my knowledge, a 4X108 hub that fits both 75mm bearings and the front 4kq

He could use the rear axles and hubs from a 4kq, though it is almost certain
he'll have to shorten them slightly. After going through all this trouble he
might as well complete the conversion and use the 5X112 hubs from a 5ktq.
