Drum to disc Conversion

I have a 94 EX sedan and I was wondering if it was possible to convert my rear drums into disc by simply buying a stock disc setup from say a 99 civic Si and swapping it out with the drums on my car......if anyone knows the answer please let me know....thanks guys.

From what I have read about changing from drum to disc on my 94 hatch, you have to use an integra rear arms, the integra brake cables etc, etc. Do a google search and im sure you can find something.

no you cant just buy disc brakes. There are possibilities.

The easiest:

find dohc vtec chassis which already has rear disc brakes. Do the whole swap.

civic 5.5 (engilish version civic) chassis has also rear disc brakes, but in this case, i'm only 95% sure if its going to fit.

You have to have the spindle to fit the calipers. The best way is to go to a junkyard and pull the rotors calipers and entire hub with spindle from an integra and go from there. That's what I keep seeing when I research it.
