      If you do the Disco-Tech swap buy the caliper adapters first hardest part to find. MO. They come up for sale here or put a want ad for them. They're usually around $175 here on ebay $300 isn't uncommon asking price.

      Edit: I noticed after writing above they give another option for caliper adapters.
      I was referring to the pin type adapters.

      The knuckles and rotors should work. You'll need to hang the calipers to the rear if you have an anti-sway bar. You can get 11.75 caliper adapters from DoctorDiff and then use a caliper from a rear hung FMJ car. Doctor Diff has the correct brake hose for that setup. In short it is a bolt on swap once you have the correct parts on hand.
