The 5.0 spindles are NOT compatible with a '68 as the front suspension is entirely different. The Granda conversion is a popular alternative for disc brakes BUT early Grandas are getting hard to find.

brakes for a 68

Thank for the relpy I was looking for a cheap way to convert, the Granada conversion cost as much as the brake kits. Any input is greatly appreciated as I am still an apprentice to your guys knowledge.

I think you are thinking of granada stuff. He was asking about later mustang parts and they do not work (unless someone knows something I don't).
