Is ther a cheap way to convert a stock 10 bolt to disc brakes using junkyard parts????
They say you can swap the parts off the front and make it work cheaply....try the 12 bolt disc thread also. Somebody needs to write this up and post it in the Tech area......Good luck!

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...
