suspension options

OK my truck 67 GMC SWB Step-side has a stock suspension front and rear (leaf springs). And of course drum brakes. So do I try and run down a front suspension system out of a 1971 truck for the disc brake upgrade or is there other options...like a new IFS or some middle ground? And with the 6 lug bolt pattern doesn't seem to support the high performance upgading, any idea's.

Thank you for the heads up!

Wow, that was quite a bit of information to consider. It certainly provides more options for my 67's upgrade.

If you like to do some fab work, consider installing C4 Corvette suspension. The width is great for your application and the handling, ride, steering and braking will be better than any aftermarket suspension kit I've seen.
