It may be able to be done, but you may need a few other parts to do it. I seem to remember you will need the ABS box from a 93+ car, but I may be mistaken.

These calipers are quite odd and if not properly serviced (regular fluid changes) the piston adjuster mechanism can rust and freeze which causes this problem. If the cable is rusted and cannot easily slide, this may need replacement. > > I was told the front temp sensor needed to be replaced.
