Having done part of this swap one time, I can tell you it is a task involving fabrication and sourcing parts. You won't have a parking brake if you swap in the 88 stuff unless you change the rear axle as well, and all the rigging for the rear brake setup.
It's involved and more difficult in my opinion than just fixing the issues with your stock brake setup. Having the donor car is a big help, but it is also a big job to swap in all those parts. If you want it done correctly anyway......not trying to rain on your parade, but I'm glad it's over with and I didn't have to fight most of the major work on this swap -- the PO did some and Cmyles did the rigging with parts contributed by Jon William -- we had brackets missing for the parking brake that we could not find until he discovered they were on a salvage car he had.
