Asked by May 28, 2008 at 11:51 PM about the 2001 Mercury Sable GS

Question type: Car Customization

what are the chances of being able to upgrade the rear drum breaks to disc breaks on an 01 sable sedan?   I know the wagons came with rear disc breaks.  are the parts interchangeable without much hassel?  

also is there any way to get high performance rotors and pads for the fronts?  I go through breaks and rotors quickly :)

not much hassel at all

You need a metering valve, calipers, pads, and rotors. I believe this is all that would be required from a disk brake donor vehicle. Not sure if the master cylinder is different.
