Break problems so far

I just got an 84 and we thought it had a wheel bearing out in rear since it was a commen problem. We removed the rear tire and discovered that the whole break caliper bracket was put on car with wire. Yes I said wire. The ears on the backing plate are completely broke off. The guy apparently thought it was OK not to tell me and I drove car two hours home after about 30 minutes the car became so shakey in the rear end I had to limp it home at around 40 or I felt like I was going to die. I have discovered that it's a kinda common issue so my question is was there an upgrade for this or do I have to go back with original junk parts. Thanks any help would be great as II plan on rebuilding thiscar.
