Lightbulb Drums to Disc...?

I ... totally ... hate ... drum brakes ... anyone else?

now on the 94 ssei i have to deal with drum brakes... im going to need to service them and when i say service i mean new shoes, wheel cylinder, the works... so aside from doing all that i would rather get rotors, calipers, and all from a newer body style in the local J.Y. but would that work???

i know on some vehicles its almost a bolt on change-over... would it be the same on the bonnies??? anyone know?

btw im not doing this to save money, i want 4 wheel disc brakes, they perform, look, and service better... its an upgrade like all our other stuff hehe

To my knowlage no. There have been others who wanted to do this and found no way of doing it. I'm not saying it can't be done, it just wont be a easy thing to do.

Try to see if you can live with doing one more drum brake service. I am about to figure out some new rear brakes for my own 94 SSEi. It will take some welding...
