definitely just go to a junkyard and pull the rear brakes off an sn95 or new edge. You also will need to rear brake lines and a different brake booster with a proportioning valve for the rear discs. I'd suggest swiping all of that off the new car minus the rear brake lines. I'd def buy those new. Since you already have the 5 lug shafts those should work just fine.

The only kit I have really seen for the fox bodies is the cobra kit but I'm pretty sure those are around $1000 which was always a little rich for my blood lol.

Thats not too bad of a price but the junkyard option probably comes out to half that but nearly everything is used so maybe ill be able to find a 5 lug kit and have all new parts for the rear....

Yeah they have 5lug kits and with the junkyard stuff there is about 3 or 4 options for master cylinders and then u gotta find the right ebrake cables. The kit is already figured out for you. I started to do the junkyard route and found this was way easier and I like the idea that every component is new or remanufactured.
