Make sure you have the e-brake cables on those. I've never heard of anyone converting the drum cables to fit the disc. (can it be done?)

The axels will fit just fine. If you don't have a sway bar, now would be an excellent time to add one. Don't bother trying to re-use the e-brake cables on the drums. Make sure that the rear knuckles you buy have the e-brake cables attached and in good working order. I've seen places simply cut the cables when removing the assembly from the car.

Do a search in this forum. There is plenty of good information that has already been posted. Happy swapping.

I suggest some spare lat. link bolts. Getting the lateral links off and the hub nut are the hardest parts of the swap.
The flex brake fluid hoses are different too, so you will need a set if the calipers don't already come with them.
