i just purchased a wilwood 13" 4 piston big brake kit for my 99 for the front obviously. with having the big brake kit in the front will make it look stupid having the drums in the rear. here is my question. can i take the disc set up from the front and just move it to the rear or do i have to go to a junk yard and find a rear disc set up off of an se model. im not well educated in the brake department so i dont know what is in involved in doing the rear drum to disc conversion.

I won't get into detail, there is a Rear Drum To Disc Conversion thread in the F.A.Q. section, but basically...
No, the rotors can't go back there for these reasons:
1) the suspension knuckle on drum units doesn't have a holder for the brake caliper
2) Even if you had a rear disc knuckle and rear brake calipers, the front rotor isn't the proper size (too thick) for the rear calipers.
