You can swap the SN95 rear disc brakes on to a Fox Body.
The only drawback IMO is that you need to use the SN95 axles, which push the wheels out 1" on each side toward the fender.

Finding a rear disc brake kit for a 93 Fox Body has been very difficult.
I can find almost every other year without to much trouble.
The only thing I ran across during my search was this - Rear Disc Brake Kit on eBay. That listing is outdated but this guy may be able to help you find what you need. - Tech Parts Plus More
NOTE: You will need to upgrade your master cylinder & proportioning valve too when installing rear disc brakes, as the factory master cylinder will not supply enough fluid for rear disc brakes and the brake proportioning is different for disc brakes.

OR, you can just get a kit - SSBC Disc Brake Kit which is much simpler.
He has a 5 lug conversion...

Not "bad" & yes it does.
At the expense of limiting your wheel width.

They add .750" to 1.0" on each side to your rearend wheel mounting width.
I have read that this limits you to an 8" wheel width on the rear unless you want to modify the fender.

Or you can use your five lug axles in that rear end and buy the off set caliper brackets for it.
