when i swapped to disc, i also did ss lines, not sure if the drum fitting is different than the disc fitting, so you may need rear brake lines.

also swapped parking brake cables as they came with my swap.

If you have drums in the rear originally, I think you'll need to do a hub conversion as well.

I have a '97 L. Rear drums in the rear. Had to swap out the hubs in order to convert to disc brakes.

I don't think you need hubs, but you'll need the backing plates (which are pressed onto the knuckle.....easiest to just the the whole damn thing) for the ebrake shoes.

Ebrake line is really up to you. Uh... There are really two ways to go about this. Both are a pain in the ass. One way is to totally replace the ebrake lines. Pull out the interior, detach the old lines and attach the new ones. The other way... You can reuse your existing ones, but you have to take apart the old hubs to detach it, and when you put the new one on, you have to reattach the ebrake lines. Yeah... tough choices...
