Front Disc Brake kit for 1rst gen Camaro

I am looking for a good and reasonably priced kit for my 67. I see a bunch on E Bay witha variety of parts pieces and prices. I want a dropped spindle with a booster that will fit a tall cover BB.
Has anybody used a particular kit that they would recommend?
Thanks!

Check out Matt's Classic Bowties (he is a sponsor here)

He gave me a "Smok'n Deal" on a complete front drum to disc conversion with a complete line kit that fit like butter!

X2 on Matt's. Lifetime warranty and free pads for life along with configurable options. I would avoid drop spindles based on most of the feedback on them however. Drop springs seem to work better.

I just installed a kit from this manufacturer................

http://www.ssbrakes.com/

I also would recommend the 2" shorter(dropped) springs(I used Hotchkis springs) instead of the 2" dropped spindles.

Bill,
Ground up and Matt's Classic Bowtie's both use the same kits from Right Stuff. They are an easy kit to install and I got the drilled and slotted rotors also, plus I got all three braided lines for free with the hard line kit.
