60 GMC disc conversions

Hey y'all ive ownd my 60 for about eight years now and am thinking its time to do the disc brake conversion,but there are a few things troubling me like: GM used three different ball joints and control arm bushings now I really am not to thrilled about dropping the control arms and torsion bars am wondering what later model spindles would work?
Igot ahold of a ChevyDuty catalog and it offers a set of 2 1/2" dropspindles for the 60-62 &says it'll use '71-87 rotors,calipers,and bearings but am not to sure about dropping my front end then theres the problem of braking ,master cylnder ,proportioning valve ,lines ...

if anyone has any input please help!

They will answer your questions, even if you decide not to buy from them. They will also sell you the brackets you need and tell you what parts you can pick up locally.
