Front Disk Brake Kit

I am going to get a front disk brake kit very soon (these drum brakes suck haha) and I was looking around at different kits when I stumbled upon these guys. CSRP front disk brake conversion kits. These kits seem to be a great buy especially at a price of $524 plus S&H. I am looking into getting the kit in the link below. Anyone have any thoughts on this kit? Has anyone had any experience with CSRP kits?

Looks like its musing the proportioning valve. But they're are providing an adjustable rear brake valve. The reason is the kit uses the original brake lines which has different size fittings than disc. So they provide adaptors for the flex brake hose. To completely make or all new you would replace front brake lines to disc and a new proportioning valve. But it will work as is.
Also do you have power brakes? If so you'll want to make sure the booster is in good shape before doing the whole job. If you're doing the work, get a power bleeder, it's awesome and makes bleeding a breeze. You'll need a bench bleeder kit for the new master cylinder, only about $10 at NAPA. Bench bleeding the master cylinder is crucial to getting it right.

No I don't have power brakes. I am going to buy some braided brake lines. Yeah I am going to get a bench bleeder kit as well

Yeah it looks like a fairly complete kit for the money and it shouldn't be that hard of an install. A day or 2 probably
