you can piece together your own kit for much cheaper than that

then add front brake pads for an 1985 chevy K1500 and the banjo bolt brake lines for an 1985 chevy (one per side) and you are good to go

i have a couple thousand miles on my set up using those exact parts and it was cheaper that way

as far as i know you can get the the rear disc brakes from a 99ish super duty at least the f250 and its almost a bolt on if a can remember right ford used the same rear axel so if you can find a sd around that yr at the junk yard measure the bolt pattern in you rear axel for the drum breaks then measure the bolt pattern on the sd cause thats what im planning on doin on mine

Bingo. E-series vans I hear have rear discs though.

Unfortunately the e-series and super duty use a different flange on the axle to mount the disc bracket compared to the OBS drum. The econoline van uses a Dana 60 rear instead of a sterling, so that's not easy either. You'd have to cut the old brackets off, and weld on a carefully removed set from a donor axle. The econoline rotor would have the correct bolt pattern.
