brake upgrades

78 cj5 with stock front disks and rear drums, ive seen the rear disk conversion kits but are there any other good upgrades? i already have a leaking front caliper so ill be working on the brakes anyway so anything i could do to make them better would be great.

Since your front brakes do most of the work, I would work on those first. If you never have, replace the rotors and get some good pads and see where that gets you and make sure you have no leaks. I have seen the rear disc upgrades but have never heard of anyone using them.
