You can still get a proportioning valve new trough GM. Part#1257189 for about $150. Kind of pricey, but still available.

I'm doing the Global West conversion on the front of my 70. Upper control arms you'll have to buy from GW or Hotchkis. Junkyard stuff, spindle, calipers, rotors you can use 70-81 F-body, or I think 79-96 B-body. You'll also have to use a different lower b-joint, and outter tie rod ends.

No, you can not use the drum stuff. Disc brakes take more volume to work properly. Just look at a caliper next to a wheel cylinder, and you'll see the caliper holds twice as much fluid if not more. Prop valves are different, also. You might be able to use the booster, if a new master will fit.
