um good question on the banjo bolts. probably will. Check advance auto part numbers?

getting the bushings out more or less you need a press to do it. not a fun job at all

if you want the bushings out you need a big press.

I think your banjo bolts would work with the 86 calipers could you test one. Or maybe buy calipers that will work I know it's an expensive solution

Yes, the banjo bolts work. I went through the same issue when I did my 60 swap. I resorted to going to the u-pull and removed and compared several bolts to find they were identical (even on the F-150)
