I have a 1996 suburban 1500 and want to upgrade

with a 2000 disc brake rear end?

No the rears charged in 2000, you can get a kit to upgrade but keep in mind that you will also need to install a proportion valve to allow more pressure to the rear brakes. The cost foe the parts will run you about $800.00 not sure if's it worth the money for this old of a truck !

Not that easy- like Comet says, the brake system is an integrated system, front and rears have to work together- if you want better braking, upgrade the entire system, and have somebody do it who knows what they're doing- otherwise, you are risking your life-
