Lots of kits available out there. That said here's a write up on a cheap conversion using S10 Blazer parts. S10-Blazer rear disc conversion | NastyZ28.com

i was looking at the Jegs kit found below.
Kinda wondering if anyone's ever done that kit before and if i would need a whole new brake setup (new booster, master, etc.)
