86 trans am rear brake swap

my 58 pickup has an 86 trans am rearend in it, came with rear disk brakes, posi and 3.27 gear.
the rear disk brakes have an integral parking brake in the piston.
the seal on the parking brake started leaking, even though i don't use it or have it hooked up.
calipers are the same left and right, left in back and right up front.
is there a caliper swap that i can do to, that will give me an easy to hook up parking brake?
maybe even a backing plate, rotor and caliper swap...

I've also heard that S10 rear disc brakes fit pretty easily.

If it really has a 3.27 ratio it is a Borg Warner 9-bolt rear (count the cover bolts). The calipers should be cast iron. There are not any aftermarket brackets to change calipers. I've heard that later (1989) 9-bolts sometimes came with pbr calipers that were the same as f-bodies, c4s and c5s.
