93 civic drum to disc brake conversion?

hey me and my boy are buildin a show car for our shop and its a 93 civic...it has drums on the rear and my question is whats the easiest way to convert this...we want to do cross drilled/slotted rotors. i heard its easier to just get a set of 2 rear hubs...but what else is needed besides the calipers, rotors, pads, proportioning valve? does anyone have a write up on this for the how to?

break them read drum breaks

yeah just get the hubs offf but you 'll need the e brake lines aswell. just take the whole rear arms off a teg (94-00) or 4d eg. its the easiets way to go. cuz u still have to run the e brake lines any ways. plus those bolts can get stripped. they like sum star pattern rite??
if u font have proper tool try gettin one of those impact tools bluepoint has them. when u hit it it turns the bolt on/off. thats how i did my rex.

just get trailing arms off a 91 integra. thats what i did.
they bolt right up. but you will have camber issues. and lower control arm issues

you cannot use the integra lower control arms. you have to reuse your civic lower control arms. and same goes for that bracket that connects the upper point of the hub to the body.
other than that its basically plug n play.

you have to get the parking brake cables from the integra as well.

and the proportioning valve.

good luck

just use the 4dr eg they are plug and play. if you use the whole arm if you use your old trailing arm there are 4 torx head bolts that hold the hub on beat the torx in with a hammer so id dont strip out. i have done it b4. and use a friend too it helps
