Disc brake conversion for a 67' mustang

Ok, I've got the spindles rotors and calipers for this conversion from a 76 Granada. Do I need anything else for this conversion? Will I need ball joint from a 70' mustang to complete this conversion or will the ones from my original drums work? It's a long story, but I can't put them on right now. I'll be able to in a week or so and I'll find out then, but I'd like to know ahead of time if I'm going to need more parts. I realize I'll need a new master cylinder and brake booster, I'm mainly concerned with the mechanical attachments to the front steering. This is my first restore job so bear with me. If I come across as ignorant, it's because I am. Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance,
Pencilneck314

No you don't need anything else. I did the same thing with my 67. Are your calipers and rotors in good shape? I used my calipers for cores and got rebuilt ones from Napa. I put on a power booster (tight fit with the clutch rod) but it works. It stops now. HTH. Norm.

Thanks for the info, both you guys. Yep, the rotors are pretty thick, but I haven't been able to test the calipers yet. How much are they at NAPA? I may need to pick up a pair. I'll probably leave the drums on the rear since the front discs are pretty big.

Thanks again for the info.

I don't remember exactly what the cost was but around $80.00 for the calipers, pads, and the old ones for cores. I still have drums on the rear. Surface the rotors before you put them on.

You have the rotors surfaced to remove imperfections that would normally cause vibration when you step on the brake pedal. its generally not something you can do on your own, but it doesn't cost much to have done.
