Your stock master cylinder could be used with this kit however we always recommend a dual reservoir master cylinder for the safety factor and larger volume of fluid. If you use your existing master cylinder you will need to install a proportioning valve such as number 91031353 in the line going to the rear in order to get correct pressure to both the front and rear for proper braking. Any original valves should be removed and full pressure to the front discs. The proportioning valve will provide a reduced pressure to the rear in order to get the braking power in balance.

Can this kit come with 6 lug rotors? I just bought a 69 chevy C 10 as a project, it has the original drum brake set up on the front, I want to convert to disc but it already has expensive aluminum slot mags on it and don't wanna have to buy new if I can help it.. Thanks

The spindles you reference are for the 1963 through 1970, Chevrolet, ½ ton, 2wd pickups. These are the only spindles we offer for that application. If you need some sort of stock replacement spindles I suggest that you contact an older salvage yard in your area (or possibly search online).
