I do not think you will find anything that is bolt on and go.

The kits for these things in the past have included the spindles that are specific to the 58-64 cars.

If you discs on your car, you should probably go ahead and get a kit for it, or at the very least do some looking to see if there is a combination of parts that will woirk with the original spindle.

Would be advisable to also upgrade to the 64 spindles and hubs for the roller bearings vs the ball bearings

I have noticed that places like Classic Industries or Classic Performance Products have started putting stuff together using original spindles.
Was not the case when I did my 59.

Whoops---need to read and comprehend---I was thinking big car and you are working with a ChevyII. Way different set of rules here that I know nothing about.

The only year Chevy offered disc brakes on that chassis was 1967, and not many were made. You might be better off installing an aftermarket kit. 62 to 67 Chevy II was the same chassis.

I would contact Scarebird... http://www.scarebird.com/index.php?id=1 ...and ask them. They sell bracket kits that use over the counter pads and rotors
