66' chevy disc brake conversion

I want to swap out the stock front drums on my 1966 chevy pickup to a set of disks off of a 1986 camaro. I was hoping to use a converson kit from www.classicperform.com, the part # is 6370dbk-5
but I would rather not spend 150$ on somthing that may not work, could anyone suggest some alternatives, or if it will even be possible to use the camaro calipers and rotors.

I have already read just about all the other disk retrofit threads. So dont flame me for asking a question.

The 86 Camaro brakes are kinda small for my taste, even on an 86 Camaro. They may not take repeated use on your truck. That's about the size the S10s use. Full size GMs are bigger. I doubt the rotor would swap to your spindle anyway.

I never liked that style bracket either. They have a kit which uses the brakes and spindle off a later truck, using its ball joints and tie rods to make it fit. Seems like you could do that yourself a lot cheaper.

Typically, use master off same vehicle as calipers. If your pedal ratio is different, you may need to change this. Pushrod lengths can vary too.
