Can I use 90s brake pads for my 1980 300 SD

Hello, I would like a prompt response. I am in Costa Rica, and they dont have any 1980s mercedes brake pads, and so im wondering what my options are. They say they have 90s model pads, can I use that? What are some other options, like just replacing the fiber? Thank you!

1980 Mercedes Benz 300SD Turbo Diesel.

Can you compare the 80's and 90's pads side by side? If they are the exact same dimensions, they should work.

What I do in cases like this, is to look up both parts and see if numbers match. However, rrgrassi has a good point. Should be able to order correct part via this site at "Buy Parts" button.
