If you want disc brakes, you get the stuff from a turbo car

 

if your car is 4wd, get the stuff from a 4wd car

if your car is 2wd, get the stuff from a 2wd car

 

;)

 

Yes, there are 2wd turbo XTs, sedans, and wagons.. probably coupes as well, but I have never seen one.

Do it dude...It's way worth it.

 

I've noticed a ton of people have been performing this swap so many of the rear discs out in the yards may already be gone.

hello.. check my thread in marketplace; i just lowered the price to $50 because I have had them for a while and got impatient to get rid of them (and other stuff) and organize my garage.. good timing on your part! if you would like to buy them i'd need your zip code for a shipping quote. thanks! (thanks Rob)

Hmm, i have an 87 Loyale 2wd. What sort of cars can be donors (wagons? XT's?, XT6's?, SVX's?), what parts do i need, and how much work is it to get the handbrake cable on the rear?

The XT6 will not work for yours unless you are doing the 5 lug swap, complete. Any EA82 2wd rear disc brakes will work, but none came with a rear e-brake.
