If you really want to convert them SSBC has a rear disc conversion kit that has everthing in it. it has the 12" rotors, large calipers, brake lines, pads, and all hardware. it runs $600. BUT this is the way to go. I have a 99 EX that I swapped a B16 in and built sleeved it and turboed it. I swapped the rear brakes with an integra and I got a deal on the SSBC kit and would recommend it to anyone. With the integra rear brake swap, you need to change the rear trailing arms, and the whole assembly, with the kit you take off your drum assembly replace with the disc put on the caliper, and brakeline and you are done. There is no fighting with the trailing arm rubber mounted bolts. And it also stops ALOT better and quieter. I also have the front big brake conversion from them too.

just swap in the rear arms from an integra, you will also need the proportioning valve from the integra or whatever car you take the setup from, as the pressures are different depending on front disc/rear drum and 4 wheel disc setups
