These are the item you need to do a Rear Disk swap from the Drum Brake system, Also, forgot to mention the "Backing Plates'.
Ask if you wanna know anything :)
This was done on a 99 Grand Am SE with the Drum Brakes, it is now Converted to Rear Disks. Check out my other video(s).

Swapping drums to disc
i bought DA trailings arms form a 93 integra to switch over because the drums in the rear are destroyed so the car for now is only breaking from the front.
Disc brake conversion on a Dana 25 or 27 Willys Jeep front axle
This is a video showing the disc brake conversion I did on my 1961 Willys 4x4 station wagon. This is the Dana 25 front axle. Here are the parts you need...
1976-1977 Jeep CJ rotors (the older thicker ones, 1 1/8" thick)
1973-1991 GM 1/2 ton 4x4 front brake backing plates
1971-1978 GM 1/2 ton 4x4 front brake calipers, lines, pads
Dorman studs, PN 610106
Search Google for the write-ups. Everything bolts on, but you do have to grind some material off the knuckle for the calipers to clear. You also need to use different fill plugs for the knuckle; I used electrical conduit plugs. You also need a 1/8" bearing spacer, or remove 1/8" of material from the hub where it faces the rotor, or remove 1/8" material from the inner brake pad. If you are using the factory master cylinder, as am I, you need to remove the residual pressure valve. This valve maintains pressure in the brake line plumbing for the drum brakes, and will cause the disc brakes to drag. I use a 10 pound Wilwood residual pressure valve in-line to the rear drum brakes, and a 2 pound Wilwood RPV to the front disc brakes.

How To Replace Drum Brake Shoes (Full) - EricTheCarGuy
Here is a full length version of a video that I posted some time ago, this way you can watch the entire thing in one sitting instead of switching from one video to the next. If your watching this for the first time I'm aware that sandals are not the best thing to wear when doing auto repair. In addition there IS a jack stand just out of frame in the video I just leave the floor jack in place while I work normally where it is so that it's quicker to let the car down when I'm done.

Big Brake Upgrade For 1999-2005 Grand Am
Here is my "Big Brake Upgrade Kit System" for my 1999 Pontiac Grand Am.
This involves Rotors from a 2000-2005 Chevy Impala (LT, LS& SS) and Calipers from 1998-2002 Camaro.
- 2004 Chevy Impala Drilled Zinc Plated 12" Rotors.
- 2002 Chevy Camaro Dual Piston Calipers With Pads And Brackets.
- 2 Bottles of High Engine Enamel Paint, Gloss Black & Aluminum Silver.
This is a lot cheaper then actually buying a Brake kit from other companies like SSBC and Baer. All these companies offer almost the exact same thing like the 12" rotor and 2 piston Calipers. You would be spending around $1000 for the Kit when you can just buy these and will work just as good. I paid all together for everything that you see and what you need for Under $250!

Dingo Brake Conversion - Disc Brakes
Here I start a series on converting drum brakes to Disc brakes on a Manco Dingo. I am doing this because the existing brakes are, well, non-existent. That is, they don't work at all. I had a disc brake caliper laying around in the garage so I am going to use it. I had to order a disc to slide onto the 1" keyed axle shaft and since I am doing that I might as well replace the axle bearings, the sprocket and other things.
Drum Brakes vs Disc Brakes - Summit Racing Quick Flicks
On this comparison video of drum brake vs disc brake systems, Dave will discuss the differences between the two systems. While drum brakes are more cost effective, disc brakes offer many performance advantages, including shorter stopping distances, reduced brake fade, and more attractive appearance.
