I've been running this swap for almost 4 years now. Here's what I did;

Grab rear lower control arms from a 2000+ lesabre or bonneville, cut off the square part where the hub bearing and caliper bolt up, have a machine shop mill the cut side flat, and drill threads out of hub bolt holes. Use these pieces as spacers between rear hub bearings and knuckles attach with applicable length and diameter hardened bolts and nuts and viola! You can mount calipers!!! Calipers will mount towards top of wheel well, and you will need to use 2000+ bonneville/lesabre calipers, pads, rotors, hoses and hub bearings. You will need to add a short piece of brake line on each side to reach the new hoses and also matching ABS pigtail connectors to match up to the new hub bearings.
