Default drum to disk brake conversion

I just bought a 93 Eclipse GS and am wanting to convert the rear drum brakes to disk brakes. Are there any recomendations on kits for this? Or if anyone else has done this swap and has any advice to offer, I'd appreciate it.

So I feel pretty dumb. Like I said, I just bought the car from an individual and he was telling me that rear drum breaks would need to be changed soon. Well right now the wheels have big nasty looking hubcaps and I couldnt see in there and I just took his word for it. But I seen the responses to my initial post and looked. Sure enough, disks. o_0

Default Same question but for a 2003 Eclipse GS

I bought a 2003 GS non-turbo and the rear brakes ARE drum brakes. Is there a conversion kit out there?
