Get your part yet? If not, holler. Got an 82 1100I with calipers that work.

82 Aspencade has Vented discs(10mm thick) all around and the calipers are unique to that year and model. Interstate calipers can be used if you swap the rotor as well. Spend the time to find the correct caliper, or try fitting a zerk fitting to the caliper and use a grease gun to pump the pistons out. Use a small block of wood to prevent the pistons from jumping out one at a time, they need to come out evenly. 8-)

I found a 1/8" thick piece of bar welding stock works perfectly - it doesn't let the pistons come out far enough to break the seal, but it brings them out far enough that you can easily remove them by hand once both of them have been pushed out:

The grease gun work real good . But make sure you don't pop one out to soon because one will have the hole behind it fill with grease first . The only thing i don't like about this way of getting them out is the clean up .
