Extremely Vague '83 110 Brake Question

So I want/need to upgrade the front brakes on my '83 110. I believe the British redneck that built my truck installed RR axles, likely pre-92ish. The calipers are definetly single-piston, with the pads held in with springs and clips. The rotors are junk.

Anyhoo, I want to install dual piston calipers and vented rotors, any idea how to tell the year of my brake stuff? Looks like the newer brake stuff came at the 1986 year. I guess I am most concerned with whether the caliper bolt holes line up.

I know, very vague...

Update: so according to the RN website (http://www.roversnorth.com/store/c-156-front-axle.aspx) I have early D90 up to 1989 brake pads. So can I upgrade to larger calipers and vented rotors?

Pretty sure you can just fit D90 calipers and vented rotors as a bolt on. The only issue I know is some use metric bolts to hold on the caliper and some don't, but I don't think it is an issue.

Yes I ran my D90 calipers on Janey for a spell, so I know they match.

Judging by the parts I have in my possession, you can also use the spacers/bolts from newer RRC calipers to convert your existing calipers to fit the vented disc. This is what I was going to do before I ended up with a D-90 axle.
