dana 60 disc brake conversion

Hey guys im looking to put disc brakes on a 94 dana 60 full floater, but i need P/Brake to be road legal. Is there any kits out there that have a P/brake setup. The rear axle is going under a heavy modified 2005 ram1500 that has factory rear disc brakes.

the rear is out of a 94 2500HD 3.54 gears swapped to 4.56 with a new carrier with ABS ring. going to put an air locker in it. once i get the rear under the truck. the factory drums got to go. I seen those kits on ebay. didnt know if they was any good. Ill be checking deeper into them. not sure on the caddy setup. those gm rear disc calibars need a tool when changing the pads. to turn the piston back in.

Anyone know the factory part numbers for all the rear disc components?

Here's the thuff i found at advance auto

Rear right caliper: Part No. 18-4796
Rear Left Caliper: Part No. 18-4797

Rotor: Part No. YH145357

Looks like this setup uses a drum like e-brake setup.
