69 GTX disc brakes

I need to do a front disc brake conversion on a 1969 Plymouth GTX.It has power drum brakes.I need to know if there are any companies to stay away from and the best company to buy a kit from.Does anybody have experience with mopars like this?SS brakes offers a kit.Does anybody know if they are a reliable company?

Could also go junkyarding and locate the spindles/rotors/calipers from a
72+ Charger/Satellite/Barracuda

Should bolt right up

I did this on a 67 Chrysler----appropriated the stuff from a 73 Plymouth
Worked great

Hi,
I also did the junk yard thing for a 69 barracuda, & had no problems worked great, But he asked about SS Brakes & I have no experience with them, that's why I went to the company reviews, & I have no doubt that the cost difference is quite significant, I myself would do the used parts option.

You mean there is junkyards with 72+ Charger/Satellite/Barracuda..I don't think you will find one in our junkyards.
