Would it be worth taking/swapping the calipers off the '87 5000 tq, as
the car will likely be for parts? BTW the 5000 is for sale with over
$9k in new parts(posted on Marketplace). There are relatively new ATE
powerdisk rotors, pads and calipers are in good condition that I could
swap over. Would this be a ridiculous downgrade?
If the spacers work, then that is probably my solution.
On the other hand, one of the few annoying things I experienced in my
drive home yesterday was the shimmy I felt when I applied the brakes,
which I attributed to rotors. I did not have that problem with
the '87 - nothing but smooth at all speeds after I changed out the
original rotors. I did not want to begin pumping money into the car,
especially if the UFO's are costly.
