Post by 08kgraves » Sat Aug 13, 2011 2:31 am

ok i have a 97 neon and it needs rear drums. i already replaced the shoes and springs before last winter. i was just wondering what all i would have to do to convert it to disc rear brakes before i buy drums. what would i get parts from?

My car is a '97 sport with very few options but I have 4 wheel disc brakes. ACRs, R/Ts, and many sport models had 4 wheel discs. Also some plymouth expresso neons had 4 wheel discs.

Disc brakes was an Option on neons. You just gotta look for them
