Default Disc Brake Conversion

Need some pictures of the rear disc brakes on a newer bonneville to compare with the drum brakes on my 95 SSEI. Closeups with the wheel removed would be appreciated. Want to convert the 95 to 4 wheel disc. What year did the discs come as standard???

Steve...is the monster font and bolding necessary? If not..please...

You will not be able to use the brakes from a 2000+ on the 95, totally different suspension. However..the Deville was the same setup as us with discs.
