I'm looking into doing this right now also, from what I learned the spindles and the master will be replaced I think that will be the hardest part.

I got my kit from discbrakeswap.com
It included: rotors, pads, spindles, master cylinder, bearings, proportioning valve, distribution block and soft hoses. It's based on a Granada brake setup so I had to have 15 inch wheels to clear the rotors. I bought Magnum 500 wheels to fit over the snouts on the Granada rotors.
It bolted on in a weekend. I was converting from a 6 cylinder setup so I had to change the pitman arm, idler arm, ball joints, tie rods and drag link.

It was $500 about four years ago. I looked this morning and it looks like that kit is now $679. I forgot to mention calipers in my list!

I put a willwood disk brake kit on my car it came with brakes parts only no master cylinder but you don't need to change your spindles with this set up it comes with a bracket for converting from drum to disk or disk to disk you will also need to buy some flexible hoses for the kit also.
