I have a Wilwood WIL-140-13477. My car had discs so this was not a disc conversion kit, but the caliper may be the same, but I am not familiar with your kit. In my kit they face forward and I had to drill three holes in the spindle.
This is the sketch from Wilwood for my kit:

These are pictures from my setup. I just took this pictures but with the wheels on. I can't find the pictures with the wheels off. You can see part of the caliper on the front of the spindle. I hope these help.
