Nova clip drum to disc swap,help please.

Thanks to the forum, I know I'm dealing with a 72ish Nova rear steer front clip. Is there a GM way to convert from drum to disc or do I have to go aftermarket? The whole frame is apart now,I converted to bags in front and panhard/bags in back.Frame and related parts are going out for powder coat,didn't know if to do the spindles or those would change with conversion. I'm a little front suspension challenged..Thank you...

Check the archives for how to on converting the drum spindles to disc. It involves shortening the drum brake anchor portion and threading the hole for the disc brake caliper mount.
