Re: 91 V8Q
I don't think they are inboard brakes, internal calipers are very
different from inboards brakes. Inboard brakes if I am not mistaken means
the brake assembly is not at the hub but move towards the end close to the
differential, Alfa Romeo has a few cars with the inboard brakes setup.
Inboard brakes still have the calipers riding on the outer edge of the
disks/rotors but not true for the internal calipers.
