Drum brakes conversion

My 04 focus rear drum brakes is making lots of noise. Would like to convert the drum to disc. Understand that ford raing parts have the conversion kits.http://www.fordracingparts.com/parts...KeyField=10246
My rear drum come with ABS. Anyone did it before. Do i need to get extra parts for the ABS unit for the rear brakes or the conversion kits from ford racing part will do?

I did the kit, it was cool, ask Mike at Hilbish to hook you up, send him a pm, his sn is b16sir1991. The kit comes with everything you need to do a total convert. If your car is before the 05-07 models, you might need to either upgrade your fronts or get perportioning valves for the back. There is a few threads on this, take a look.

for the rear you just have to transfer the abs ring to the new hub.
