Rotors on the rear

Is it possible to swap out the drums on the back and put rotors?

You don't have drums.. If you do there's an issue.

How about posting a picture.

I've never heard of a newer mustang with drum brakes? What the hell? You're talking about your '00 sixxer? I'm confused unless someone did a reared swap from a fox body? You sir, have blown my brain

I looked at your pictures and it looks like you have disc breaks in the back, they don't look like drums

Thats because approx 70% of your braking is done with the front.

Yeah, pads are smaller in the rear exactly because what the previous comment said. You hardly ever have to replace them. I've had my car since 89xxx miles never changed the rear pads. Now I'm at 107xxx and the rear pads have plenty of meat on them. I bought a new pair of pads and I'm just waiting on them to get eaten with my excessive breaking

These are drum brakes, although most will look black and orange, maybe rusty. Not painted nice like this one.

The way the pad/shoe makes contact with the rotor/drum...the disc/pad combo is so much more efficient and better for heat extraction.

Exactly what slo said. Better diagram. The wheel goes over the drum but overall disks and pads are way better
