Changed out my single piston brakes on my 1981I to 1982I dual pistons. You will need to change the rotors and the mounting brackets on all three along with the rotor cover on the rear. I made sure I stayed with calibers and rotors from the Interstate because the rotors are vented on the aspercade. Upgraded to stainless lines and also went to a 1982 front master cylinder as well. Works fine and the job went simple.

I found all I needed on ebay then rebuilt all before I used them. Take your time and don't go crazy with the bidding. Just wait till the time is right. I paid $14 for both front rotors and they are in great shape. Paid a $.01 for the rear and it too is straight with no grooves. Paid like $40 for both front calibers with the mounts and like $25 for the rear. The front MC was $35. Good luck and PM me if you need anything.
