OK, I have heard if you want change to front disc brakes on a 69 Roadrunner with 11 inch drums all the kits require you to change the spindles. What is the truth? Are there kits that do not require a spindle change? Thanks

So quikbird what holds the caliper. You change the spindle so you have the mounting bracket to hold the caliper for the disc. brake that is what I am seeing. Looking to change mine out in the next year. Yes looking into summit's kit's and other's. Say Terry see that it is in the area of 400 dollars to 800 depending on what company you go with. So let me know what you go with. Also read that the line bracket has some issues going from hard line to soft line. Something to look into.

Quickbird used Stainless Steel Brakes and someone else said Leed Brakes. Both kits no spindle change needed for the 10 or 11 inch drums. I think the mounting bracket goes on the spindle where the back plate for the shoes went.
All sets between $800 and $1200.
