I bought a six lug disc brake conversion kit for my '57 from Pat Crusse.  I 
haven't driven the truck yet (the body's not on the frame yet), but it looks 
like a top quality kit.  You might want to contact him for details:

1948-1970 Chevy-GMC Truck Brakes</A> 

I'm not affiliated, just a satisfied customer.
