    I don't think those will work. 10 bolts are rectangular bolt pattern, not square.

    Come up with brackets to use 76-78 El Dorado calipers, (or figure out if the front 10 bolt backing plates will work on the rear I think someone said they did) and you are pretty much set. Use front 10 bolt rotors and you should be pretty close. ElDo calipers are pricey, but under about $90/each with core charge.

    I'd do the brackets or test the front backing plate idea, but I have too much other stuff going on though...
