Not what you want to hear but look for 89-97 PBR rear disc instead of those iron calipers.

I had the pre 88 rear disc brakes and im gonna say this they suck a** best to do a 89+ rear end or change the backing plates to do the 89 pbr brakes the e brake will actually work and u will feel better braking coming from the rear when stopping
