brake caliper

I have a quick technical question that maybe someone can answer. I have a 86 D110.
I have a LF brake caliper seizing up and I was going to replace it. Can I replace it with a caliper from a 93 NAS 110?

I am looking to get something quick and see that my local parts store can get this in overnight. I was going to order the rebuild s/s piston kit if I was going to do myself but I have a local part time mechanic looking at it and figure it would take longer to rebuild and would rather order a refurb set.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance...

From what George @ RDS told me, you can use DiscoveryII calipers; you'll need to buy new rotors and brakepads, of couse. I did this and it still stops just fine, even pulling a trailer, no warped calipers or fading. I did have to make new steel lines that run from the rubber hose to the calliper itself.
