changing a 04 tarus to discs??

I was wondering how different the rear axle in a sedan and a wagon are. The wagons use a disc brake setup vs the sedans drum. Anyone have any idea what it would take to convert the drums to discs? I cant find any websites on tauruses. Anyone know of any by chance? Thanks.

Just read a post a few pages back, I guess that answeres my questions assuming a 01 and 04 are the same. Still though, does anyone know any striclty taurus forums or pages? Thanks.

Go to www.taurusclub.com. They several write-ups.

You can not use the wagon discs on a sedan. The reason is, in the rear, wagons use shocks and the sedans use struts. BRackets and mount point are different.

I'm in the middle of converting my 2000 Taurus SEL rear drums to 96-99 Sable sedan discs. I bought both rear e-brake cables, loaded 97 sable sedan calipers, new sable brakes lines, slotted and dimpled discs. From the junkyard you need the sable knuckles, back shield plates, caliper brackets and some other parts. Just go to the yard and buy the whole rear caliper/splindle assembly so you have most bases covered. The other members of taurusclub.com still are not sure my bearings will match either (I hope they do!!!)
