HELP! unless you want me without front-brakes.

I found a 51' GMC in a junkyard around here. I have no idea what "rating" it is, but its a light duty pick-up I'm guessing.

I was just wondering, where could I get some disk-brakes for this truck? Or where could I find some actual brake parts for this truck?

I'm not interested in putting another front clip under this truck, since I don't want to go through the trouble, or get rid of the straight axle.
