On a Ford Explorer : There are disc brakes on the front and ( starting with the 1995 model year ) there are disc brakes on the rear also ( instead of drum brakes on the rear )
No. Drum brakes expand inside a rotating drum to stop the vehicle, disc brakes squeeze in against a rotating disc.
No, they are inferior to disc brakes. Drum brakes were used from the beginning of the auto up until the late 60s. Drum brakes are more prone to overheating than disc brakes. Disc brakes also shed water much better than drum brakes which improves stopping distance in wet conditions. Disc brakes apply pressure more evenly than drum brakes thus improving stopping distance. Disc brakes are superior in every way.
disc brakes on the rear since the 1995 model
Disc brakes stop a vehicle more efficiently than drum brakes.
This will greatly depend on what kind of brakes you have and which parts you are trying to replace. Do you have disc or drum brakes? If you have disc brakes, do you want to replace the calipers, pads, or rotors? If you have drum brakes, do you want to replace the drum, or the shoes?

Yes there are kits out there where you can convert drums to disc
it either has front disc brakes and rear drum or it has front and rear disc bakes. look for a flat disc in the front and back - those are front and rear disc brakes-they take pads. The drum brakes take shoes.
Its very easy to spot the difference if you look at the back wheels and see a disc (just like the front wheels ) then you have disc brakes and if not you have drums
A disc brake kit is used to convert an older automobile's drum brakes to disc brakes. Your 2001 Gallant already has disc brakes. It would not require the disc conversion kit. When you begin to hear your brakes squeaking it is time to take your car to the repair shop for new brake pads.
Disc brakes are not subject to "fade" which occurs when drum brakes overheat and lose the ability to stop, another advantage of disc brakes is that they tend to stop in a straight line unlike drum brakes which often "pull" to one side. Yet another advantage of disc brakes is that they self adjust by drawing brake fluid in behind the piston while it is common for the self adjusters in drum brakes to seize due to corrosion then the drum brakes quit adjusting then the brake pedal goes lower and lower.
Different body styles. Different springs 2001- drum brakes 2003- disc brakes.
Drum brakes do not have the stopping ability of disc brakes, so no not harder, but slower.
I don't know about the Isuzu, but the 93-97 Altimas had front disc brakes and rear brakes were standard drum, or optional discs.
front and rear are disc
You have hydraulic brakes and air brakes. Hydraulic brakes can be drum or disc. Air brakes can be drum, disc, or wedge. On a lot of medium duty trucks and RVs, the parking brake can be a shaft brake, mounted to the back of the transmission.
