Spindles / Calipers on a dropped spindle
Spindles / Calipers from a donor car.
Upgrade to power brakes a good idea
Upgrade to dual master cylinder essential for safety and balance
proportioning valve----different on disc/disc and disc / drum
Some cars have a bracket and caliper kit for existing spindles and ride height.

Years ago I changed the type of discs on my 67 Chrys 300
The price of the calipers (4-piston fixed) and rotors for that car were thru the roof at the time----I procured the spindles and rotors from a 73 ply Fury (single piston floating calipers) and they bolted right on. I was only 20 at the time and way not too bright, but I did have the sense to check to see that both cars had basicall the same components. Oh, the lower ball joints on that disc braked Chry 300 were way to pricey as well, approx 4x the cost of the ply ball joints,
so that turned out in my best interest as well.

That car was stolen for the 3rd and final time in '89--stripped to the shell when I got it back.
