    There are several companies that provide the kit you want. Pick up a copy of Street Rodder magazine and look through the adds. I copied a kit produced by CPP. Uses Aeroster rotors and Camaro calipers. I made my own brackets and bearing spacers. Used G M booster and master from late 60's. Make sure that you get a booster/master that came from a vehicle with disc/drum brakes. Also used the G M proportioning valve from the same vehicle . Brakes are a great improvement over stock. Work like a new car. In my opinion, defenately worth the time and cost
