front calipers on the rear of my race car

Hello - looking for opinions --and info --- are all 70-76 rear rotors the same ???

are all trailing arms the same ??? -

- I have a 914 race car that has no brakes mounted - the body is a 76 --- front suspension is 71 and I bought new rotors for all 4 corners. I have 6 stock front calipers (new and old) + the 2 early ones on the car --

-- and 6 rear calipers (new and old all of them need rebuild) -

-- I have heard people put front calipers in the rear , but should I put early or late front calipers in the rear --- I have both ---- don't care about the e-brake ..... thanks for ideas -- I need to buy pads ASAP ---- going to do Porterfields --- but don't know which ones to buy for the rear ------

---- I DO NOT have any rear calipers that are usable --- but I have 3 or 4 pairs of fronts (early and late) that are good ------ I will run stock early fronts with porterfield pads in the front.

The car has an adjustable proportional valve next to the shifter ---- the rear factory valve is gone and a "T" installed in the brake line.
