Yes. Then you will have the same brakes as a 96 V6 without ABS.

You should know though, that you will get more improvement by putting the front SVT brakes on it even if you keep the rear drums.

I was gonna buy the front and back and put them on, just wanted to make sure they'd work without the abs.

I'm pretty sure ABS is enabled on rear-wheel drum brakes.

I can hear the front brakes hitting the ABS system (Which I don't and will never like), but since it's illegal to unplug or disable anti-lock brakes, I'll live with them.

But I never heard them engage on my rear wheels (drums)

I've only had the car for a couple of months, I have to do the rear brakes, so I could take a peek and come back to you.

On my Cavalier, the ABS would hit way too soon (caused me top rear-end a Protege), on the Contour, I would like them to engage a little later, but they're OK (been criving for the last 16 years.)

There's a feller on ebay selling both rear hubs with the suspension still intact. It'll be a [censored] to ship; maybe the seller will take the suspension parts off and sell 'em. Anyways, they're items 8072084582 and 8072086647.
