you will probably need to change the rotors so you have the ring inside the rotor that the wheel speed sensor picks up, then the speed sensors, then the thing that sits inside the passenger side front bumper area that controls the abs, and the wiring loom for it, my el doesnt have abs but it has the wiring there for the wheel speed sensors already so you might be lucky there

s**t i did this years back to happy's car
and uglybob helped too

u will need a complete loom for the car
as the wiring for the rear sensors is not in base model loom

then rear axles, front rotors, all the sensors
the abs unit
new ecu ( i think )
iirc u need a high series bem as well?
new brake lines

and about a days work
there is some stuff i think im missing but hell it was like 8yrs ago when i did this
