yes they will fit. you will have to use the master cylinder and the equalizer block from the 79 to get them to function right, but it is not a hard swap at all. sure makes a difference in the braking.

Hey yall thanks for the info.
I thought they would but I didn't want to get it all apart
and find out that they wouldn't.

only if you want power brakes also. it is easier to swap the whole thing anyway.
