Rear disc brakes

Hello all,

I have a question regarding rear disc brake applications for a 8.8" rear end. Hopefully, you guys can help me out.

I recently bought an 8.8" rear end out of an '88 thunderbird to be fitted under my '70 fastback. I want to put disc brakes on it, but don't want to spend $1800 on Baer/Wilwood/etc. at least not at this point in time.

I have a few junkyards in my area that are full of Mustangs/Explorers/F150's that would have plenty of calipers and brackets at my disposal. So the question, are the disc brake setup on these cars specific to the rear end or to the model of car? Example, would an Explorer's rear disc brakes fit on my 8.8" rear end?

Thanks in advance.
