Cheapest place to buy 15" conversion kit or dyi???

So looking around these kits are priced rediculous.. is this something where stock suspension parts could be modified? Trying to find the cheapest way possible way to do 15" conversion.....

Your Stock Components would never work and if you got them to fit, they would flex & bend.

here is everything you need minus brakes. this would be the cheapest way to do it.

for brakes you could either buy the mark carlyle kit for 650 or buy v6 calipers and mill them down.

Thanks a ton for the link! Doesn't the kit come with v6 brakes for $985? I wonder if I could trade my brembo's for stome stock v6 brakes + a little cash to counter some of the conversion cost's.
