if he has abs, he's got rear discs. if he doesn't, he's got drums.

both work equally well in almost all situations. the discs excel when it comes time to maintenance them, tho. if you're racing, you will change brakes often and it's WAY easier with discs. if you're not, don't bother swapping (unless you're going for the show car look) because you won't get any performance gains...


edit: i REALLY hope you were just talking about the rear brakes. drums haven't been used on front brakes for passenger cars in over 30 years...
