1983 front brakes into 1980 wagon

I am also looking for the parts to do this conversion.

If I wasn't in Iowa I would think about sending you some calipers and rotors to test the theory on but they are RUSTY and I would cry thinking rusty parts went on a car from Oregon.

but how rusty can they be? would a bit of steel wool clean it up, or is it beyond that. I am just itching to get my car back on the road (and by road, i mean the goat trails in the woods)
I might have access to the parts i need off of an 83 2 wheel drive gl wagon. Key word being "might". Does anyone know if the 2WD front brakes are the same and the 4WD?

my 82 wagon has the replacement done on it.

When doing the conversion on the earlier cars, do you have to swap the caliper bracket too?? (I'm assuming you do.)

I know that you can put 2wd axles on a 4wd car and vice versa, but the real 4wd ones have fatter shafts (27mm vs. 25mm) and larger joints (87AC vs. 82AC).
