it's in reference to the type of rear brakes. Drum brakes or Disc. If you can see a disc brake caliper like the front ones, then you disc brakes. Search online for images to help.

The SES will have 4 wheel Disc Brakes but as Tom stated above a visual inspection will tell you. If you look inside the wheels and the back brakes look the same as the front, you have four wheel disc, if you look through the wheel and the rear brakes look different, then it has rear drums brakes. I can't even remember the last time a vehicle was built with front drums, I think front disc because a requirement by the NTSB in 1978. Best of luck!

thanks guys, I meant on the rear, I know I have disc on the front. Having to relearn this car, but I will get there.
