Will this front and rear brake kit work with my '03 ZX3

Hey everyone, I'm in need of some new rotors and pad for my front. So while searching Rock Auto for the front rotors and pads, i noticed that they have a brake pad and rotor kit available for both front and back, only $249.99. I hate how ugly the drum brakes look and have always wanted to replace my drums with discs anyway, but have always thought you needed expensive conversion kits, or needed to find the SVT parts.

So i guess i have a few questions here...

1.) Will I be able to install these on my rear, if I acquire the correct calipers , wheel hub, ect.?

2.) And can i purchase those items also thru Rock Auto, or do I need the parks of an SVT.

I feel like this all should work, but it almost seems to easy so I'm doubting myself lol

You will need the bracket that the caliper mounts to, it is discontinued from Ford. You will also need parking brake lines.

See the picture of needed parts here in this for sale ad:
