PitstopUSA has the bearings. You'll have to do lots of measuring to get the right one and probably need a machine shop to make the receiver block for you. Knowing your love of fiddling with custom parts, it should be fun.

Busy day.

1. GSL-SE is officially gone. Cut the front corners for spares for the rally car.

2. Began the FD3S rx7 rear suspension. The gas cylinder is representative of how tall the towers will likely be since the strut mounts on top of the hub assembly. Various pictures of the FD rears and the spares (i acquired three dropouts in total. left one assembled for mocking up).

3. turns out the rear brakes are FUCKING HUGE since they ever-so-barely rub the inside of my enkei. Any rally wheels have a larger inner diameter?

4. Diff is nicely sized relative to the dewalt 18v batt used for reference. Good ring. Going with either 4.88 or 5.12. Currently has a torsen diff however, but i can get a clutch verison.

It looks like it fit fairly well. OK, so relatively well, considering just how radical of a swap this is. Very nice.

well here is how the rear brakes turned out. Ideally they should be...good. Or at least decent.

Slightly modified and rearranged disc brake mounts for the front calipers of a toyota pickup circa 1984. rotor hat modified to fit my axle I already had machined to a Saab rotor (thanks JVL!), and a 300mm non-vented rotor for said hat!
