1977 wagon, Ea81 brakes/vented rotors?

Recommended Posts

I have a 1977 I'm trying to put back on the road after years of neglect. I have it running and driving but it needs brakes. I've read a little bit about using the calipers and vented rotors from a 1983+ car. Since I'm going to be replacing rotors and calipers anyway and those have better availability, this seems like what I want to do. Can anyone confirm what I need for this conversion? I've read just calipers/rotors on a 'stage 2' first gen but the info seems unclear on 'stage 1'. I think my 1977 with dual headlights is a stage 1, right? I read something about swapping on EA81 knuckles to make the calipers work. Has anyone here done that?
