Rear drums for disk

Has anybody changed out their rear drum brakes for disks? If so, can you give me the 411 on what it would cost for parts e.t.c? Did it make a difference? This has been a pet peeve of mine for awhile and wanted to see if anybody has already tested the waters, before I throw down some serious mulah

what year do you have?!


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

The 95 Mustang should have a 4-wheel disc brake system. No drums.

After doing some research, it looks as if they went to 4-wheel disc brake system on the '94 model change.

DOUBLE DOH! I'll eat a sizable size 10 for this one. I just pulled the cover and yes it is a disk. That and I was under the influence of karaoke and tequila when I wrote the original post yesterday. Sorry about that. Although I did find out I need new brakes. So I guess some good can come from this. Next time I post I'll make sure to take a breathalyzer first.
