drop spindle options

Seems I will be needing some drop spindles for my Panel. Question and it maybe pointless. Is there a spindle that will allow me to use drums off panel while allowing me to upgrade to disc brake later w/o buying another set? Do conversion kits bolt up spindle and not require it be specific for disc brake? New to all of this suspension conversion stuff. Give me simple blown, injected alcohol or Top fuel setup and I am more in more in my natural habitat.

Panel is on tight budget since race car goes thru money like fat chick in chocolate factory. Just don't want to buy two parts if biting the bullet will help skip one and same final result.

There are no drum brake drop spindle options.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: drop spindle options

so that makes it simple. Not cheap but simple.Guess I will go 2" front with springs and 3 in rear. Should still give slight rake and be little lower,Plus can always sale rear springs to recoup some money towards full blown drop and disc brake setup.
