Default Rear drums

Has anyone ever tried to switch out the rear drums to brake disc? If so which model can/will fit? I believe the Lexus ES share the same chassis so maybe those may fit?

Feedback? Anyone?

It has been done and is reasonable common.

Review past posts at the site below where it has been discussed, might even find posts with photos.

Conversions have been non-abs cars.

The Lexus ES and Avalon shared the same chassis. But Lexus may have moved away in latter years, don't know. Recall rear disks may have been an option on Camry and standard on cars with the V6 option. Its a bolt on job but you need all the parts.

What year of Camry?

I have a '93. I can do the work. I just needed the info on which car can fit it with no modifications.

Replacing pads instead of shoes is much easier.

The rear disk setup does have shoes for the emergency brake.

Check 92-96
