Nope its not that simple sorry. The easiest way to get disks on the rear is to swap the entire axle with a newer axle with disks. Find one with the same gear ratio and its a swap that can be completed in just a couple hours with pretty basic tools. I would replace the ubolts with new if it were me though.

Wouldn't that effect the ABS system too?
