Do a search. You need ALOT of parts...
Fronts (11.3's)
Swaybar and related hardware (end links)
Control arms, both right and left
Ball Joints
Complete hub assemblies
Rotors
Carriers
Calipers
Brake lines
Axles- either just outer CV's or complete axles
Rear (from drum)
Stub axles (spindles)
Rotors, with bearings
caliper carriers
calipers
brake line
e brake cable..
The ONLY part you can do without is the front sway bar. That's it. If you find a car that has all the suspension intact, then go for it. Otherwise, it's not worth it. I've spent over $1k on my conversion...

I love my 11.3 convo.
I scored used parts for the brake convo with x-drilled and sloted brembo rotors, his used H&R coilovers, black de wheels with rubber, and a big master cylinder. It ran me $700, for everything. Let the hate out, i love it..
