   The 865ktq I have has single piston cals. and the pads are the same 
as the 844ksq I also have. Fronts and rear! For one execption the fronts 
on the 5ktq are thicker by a few millies. Otherwise the same. I believe 
the coupe Qs are the same. 
   My 86 5ktq is an early mod. I think is was built in the month of may.
