Is there a later model Mopar that can donate disc brakes for the front of a 51 Plymouth? Or do I just need to go aftermarket?

If you have 3-bolt spindles this kit includes hubs.

I put disc brakes on my '55 which has the carryover '46 to '54 3-bolt spindles that your car has. I used the Scarebird kit. Only thing I had to modify was cutting a deeper slot in the castle nut for the spindle.
