Default 1999 Accord LX, Rear Disc Brake Upgrade...

I have a 99 Accord LX 4Cyl 2Dr Coupe. Unfortunately as you all know it comes with drum brakes in the rear and I would like to upgrade it to Disc. Not just for performance reasons, but also because I can Lower my Insurance rate!
Safer Car = Cheaper insurance.
Anyway I just want to know what I'm lookin at if I decide to go through with this.
Has anyone on here done it?
All I know is that I'm going to need to lose the entire drum brake, buy some calipurs, discs, new bearings probably along with their inner and outer races, but what else do I need? and where can I get the discs, calipurs, ect...
I don't remember if Honda Made a 99' 4Cyl Coupe with 4 wheel discs. I think the EX model had 4 Wheel Discs but I can't be sure. If the EX did can I just order the parts from that model and slap em on my LX?

Any information on this topic would be great.
I really appreciate the time you guys take to read my post.

Ex came with 4 wheel disk with abs.

just to make things clear, insurance wouldn't give you a penny for all the work after they find out the person installed everything was you

you need the whole knucle with rear brake line and parking hard cable.

all the multi link is the same so don't sweat

don't bother to get everything new and shiny, it will cost you an arm.
if you can't find a set at junkyard, just forget all that

proportion valve might be different coming from no-abs drum to abs disc

I am not sure ABS cars come with porporting valves since the car has 4 channel abs

Hey there,
I have the same question... I want to put rear disc on my 4 door 1999 LX Accord, 1 Cam 4 Cylinder V-Tech. And soon, but not now, until it can stop on the dime. Do not care what brand, StopTech, Brembo, Or any others. Can someone help me out, been searching and searching.... But do not want to spend 5,000 on Brakes. 2-3000 ok.
