1964 Impala SS - Dropped Spindles

I'm thinking about installing a set of 2" dropped spindles on my 64 SS using my stock drums.
There are several "after market" spindles being sold, anyone using them? Are they worth using? Pros/Cons.. Thanks in advance....

If i were going to the trouble to swap spindles, I'd find some that would accept some later model disc brakes as well.

I agree, I wouldn't want to try & stop that tank with Drums brakes.

It appears that the majority of disk brake conversion/dropped spindle kits for Chevy are setup for 15" wheels. I contacted http://www.mpbrakes.com/products/pro...product_id=365 to attempt a possibility of fitting a 14" wheel and they stated I would have to provide the exact wheel dimensions, so now I'm hunting that down via Dayton Corp. I may have to physically bring one of my wheels to a business that produces and sells a disk conversion kits to determine if it's compatible.
The problem is that I'm in Northern California, does anyone know on any company's out in this area? Or any other ideas or directions I might approach?
Thanks in advance.
