They should be a rear mount. Look at your present calipers, they should be mounted to the rear of center. I just did new calipers, pads, one wheel cylinder, shoes, drum hardware and steel brake lines on my '88 a couple of weeks ago. Everything came to around $100.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

What's really funny looking at that Max is that my '88 has vented rotors on it. The calipers match up with your pics, I also matched them to the old ones that I took off.
