I have a 52 chevy sedan that I am wanting to run disc brakes on the front. Is there a front spindle off a newer GM vehicle that I can bolt on with little to no modifications being done?

You might be able to run a spindle that will bolt right up with that era car. A lot of straight bar front axles use that era disc brake. Maybe look around on speedway.com

Speedway sells a kit for the '49-'54 Chevy cars, and '47-'59 Chevy trucks, to convert either to disc brakes. No spindle change required.

Another option is putting together your own kit using GM calipers, '83-'97 S10 rotors, and a Speedway caliper mounting bracket. It's a bit of fiddling, fabricating, and reworking the Speedway brackets. But it will save some money vs. a complete kit.
