I have two problems, first, I want to convert my rear drums to discs? who makes kits, and how much do they cost? second, I need to adjust my parking brake, but can't figure out where I adjust the cables.

The only conversion kit I have found so far that keeps the 4lug is one by Stanless Steal Brake Corperation, and it's 700 dollars. Includes calipers, rotors, brackets, mast cyl, hoses, and new parking brake cables. I have NEVER looked at the cables on the mustang, but usually the adjustment is made near the handle under the car.

That's true, however, you will still need to change the master Cylinder. Additionally, the turbo coupe rears are slightly wider than the mustang rears. So as long as you don't mind widining your rear track a little bit, you should be fine with that option too. I just find that around here those rears tend to go for about 300 bucks w/o the brake hardware...and after you have gotten everything your looking at close to 500 bucks for the converson(at least in my area). I'd rather spend the extra 200 dollars, and keep my rear track the same. Plus I just rebuilt my whole rear anyway .
