Need a bit more specifics here..do you have an early Ford axle as there is way to do this..main thing is to ditch the spindle mount wheels and install rotors and adapters for the disk calipers and then use a wire wheel with a regular bolt pattern. Mostly a bolt on deal and you will most likely have to change the master cylinder to the proper type..Speedway or TCI likely will have the pieces that you need...

Found our other post and yes change the spindles as well as u yours have had the holes on the stock spindles removed so you will need new spindles as well..measure the kingpin dia as there is a difference and that info helps in finding the right parts..

Definitely a proportioning valve will be needed as well..once you have all that stuff installed we can waalk you thru the adjustment of that thing..
I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

I am dead

Do you know any of the guys on here that are close to me.
I did have new rubber put on the front and i greased the wheel bearings ....wow i was so proud....but that stuff you just said ...no way i dont think. Big thing i guess is i have never taken out king pins at least i think that is what they are called...i have to do that to find out if it is ford or not.
i hate to say this but i will prob sell after a couple of car shows. i hate to do that and if you looked at my pics you will see how pretty she is.
