Front Disc Brakes on B-Body 65-70 Chevy Impala's

Hi all, I plan on installing a set of front disc brakes on my 68 Impala. I've looked at the conversion kits and will not use them on a full size Chevy B-Body. Just not sufficient enough with a small diameter rotor and single piston caliper that is used on mid size vehicles. I am wondering if anyone has used the Corvette disc brake set up on these cars and if they had any issues with that idea. Based on my research, the 68 Impala disc brake option (rare that it is) used the Corvette spindle knuckle and caliper. Not sure if they used the hub or any other Corvette parts. Thanks for any info and first hand experience you can share.
