    You will also need spindles and caliper mounting brackets in addtion to the parts you mentioned.

    Contrary to popular belief you do not need to get new brake lines as you can bend the bracket about 90 degrees to point the brake line out (pointing to the outside of the car rather than straight up) to make them work without binding.

    Check for sale sections on websites like this one or ebay for 'conversion kits'.

    When you get the spindles, MAKE SURE they are not bent. If they are, it will mess up your alingment to the point that you won't be able to adjust it even close to stock.

    I never checked, but spindles are pretty big, I think they are going to cost way more than they're worth if you get them there.
