disc brake update

I'm working on a 69 chevy van.I would like to install disc brakes on the front to compliment the v-8 upgrade. Does anyone know of a set of rotors and wheel bearings that will fit the stock spindles on my straight axle? The suspension on these vans are not heavy duty and I'm hoping maybe to find a passenger car rotor that might work.Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions you may have. Dadsgarage

thanks

I really appreciate the info. I also found a suggestion in another thread about using late model slip on rotors on the original hubs. BRILLIANT!!! It is such a simple solution I can't believe my simple mind never thought of it!! That's why I like having other rodders to bounce problems and ideas around with. Thanks for your help.

If you haven't already checked Google VCVC they have the parts lists and brackets for the conversion I did it on my 64. It uses Nova rotors and the stock gm calipers.
