when you replace the brake shoes replace the drums @40-60K miles.. drums wear out quickly with the shoe material now used .

To do it correctly you will need to purchase the afore mentioned expensive conversion kit.
The other option is swapping a full axle and m/c.
I gotta ask though, what are you trying to gain.
Rear disc brakes give a perception of performance, but drums do a great job of stopping a vehicle, the $$ spent vs performance gained isn't a good trade.
