what is the best option for converting from a non-power drum brake set up (with power steering) to a disc brake set up. Should i buy a kit, or find parts off of various other cars? if anyone has done this before and would like to spare me the anxiety of trial and error, it woud be much appreciated.

This topic has been discussed many times over on the old forum and you could do a search on 'disc' and find hundreds of posts. Many people advocate getting the spindles, calipers and rotors from a 70s-vintage Granada along with an early 80s (IIRC) Ford pickup master cylinder and doing home-grown conversions. However, with less effort and risk, you can spend $600-$700 and get a pre-engineered kit that will install and work perfectly and is absolutely safe. IMO, that is the way to go.
Just my $.02.
