Post Suspension - Brakes - Steering

Has anyone done a disc brake conversion on a '56 Oldsmobile 88? It has kingpins instead of ball joints.
It's a new project and I am trying to find other Oldsmen out there.
MPbrakes does not list this car so I wanted to ask in an open forum before I start to bugging those folks.
Any idea if it's the same as Chev?
thanks for the help!

Lou it would be great if you would! Any information you could get would be a huge help! Do you mean you made them for him or just "tuned" purchased brackets? If I knew what kind of stuff is available and the straight info on what it takes to fit the stuff to this chassis you would be saving me tons of headaches!
I am just starting on this thing. Also, I am toying with the idea of air bags, er.. excuse me! Air Springs! I do not know what it is like to drive the darned things.
Is it smart to only use Air springs in the front? the idea is to build this thing on the cheap as my daughter starts college in 2 yrs.
I was thinking air up front and monoleaf in the rear to bring it down some. After all, I am going to have it apart....
