    Now I've been doing some research on the front disc brake conversions for my 65 Lesabre and I have a few questions.

    First off I plan on keeping the drums on the rear for now.

    I understand a junction block and proportioning valve are two different things. Do I need both or do I only need either or?

    Some of the kits you guys have posted are A body specific. Will I have to change out ball joints or tie rod ends for them to work on my B body?

    I also read something about buying new lines vs bending my own.

    If I go with a kit ment for an A body does that mean I'm going to have to swap out ball joints when I replace the uca and lca with tubular ones?

    Lastly does anybody have a link to a kit that will just be straight forward, lines, booster, valves ect ect lol? Something I can start on a saturday morning and be back on the road sunday at the latest?

    My recommendation, DO NOT USE JAMCO.

    Is it the same as a 65 Impala? If so, this lists a kit for the 65 Impala.

    Also, Summit lists a disc brake kit for the front but it doesn't include brackets, available separately and you will need a master and a proportioning valve.
