larger rotor for a 74?

I read the sticky about disk brake conversions and it had a lot of good info, however I want to upgrade the brakes on my 74 model and it is not covered in that sticky.
I was wondering what all stock/factory parts I could use to upgrade my brakes.

I would like to increase the rotor to the 12 inch if nothing else. Would the 12" caprice rotors and spindles work from the early 90's? Would I have to change anything such as ball joints or tie rods?
If I can use the caprice spindle and I want to keep the 4.75 bolt pattern for my wheels is there anything I need besides the 1LE rotors and SAE lug bolts?

I have done a blazer spindle/rotor 9c1 master/booster upgrade on a mid 80s G body and something along those lines is what I'm looking for for this upgrade.

I want to keep as many factory type parts as possible just for ease of parts sourcing if I happen to be on the road and need a repair.

Currently running 15" wheels but will be going to 16" in the future so whatever I do needs to fit in 15's for the the time being.
