the master cylinder should be alright.. all the hardlines should be alright... hopefully in october I'm gonna hit a couple local junkyards and see if I can get some parts from cars with very similar chassis and see what swap across... the biggest problem is the mounting of the spindles, the rear lines, the Ebrake hook up and the prop valve to the rear

like I said alot of ppl want to do this but don't really bother ....I'm gonna look and see what I can find ...see if it mounts up... and let you guys know

Dude... Just grab an exact match of the knuckle from the front of your car... You'll need a kit to make the alignment right but that'* your best bet.

Disc uses more fluid than Drum, your master may not be able to handle the change and the proportioning valve may think your rear brakes are out.
