Never heard of using a feeler gauge for the brakes on any car. Once you have a slight drag, or even close, the self adjusters will take care of themselves after that. Once the linings begin to wear, you can expect to have lining-to-pad clearance in the area of sixteenths of an inch before the adjusters take another bite, not thousandths of an inch. You'll never notice that in the brake pedal. Just get those babies close and call it good.
