I wouldn't bother to upgrade the rear brakes. Those do 10-15% of your braking. Just replace pads, rotors, hoses, and calipers and it will be good to go.

Ok so then I'll just order the rear brake kit from rock auto so it has matching pads calipers and rotors. These are very nice I opened them up and took a look at them. Very solid Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Yup, and then get GM rotors. GM Part number is 18021015 . You will need different caliper brackets,GM P/N 18029829. That is a cheaper, and just as effective brake upgrade. Edit: that is all 12 inch stuff from GM on the same platform so it bolts up. The Fbody swap requires drilling, threading, and who knows what else.

I want to buy drilled rotors (not slotted/drilled) for front Impala calipers. Are there any available for sale?

Check rock auto or even tire rack. I know tire rack sells brembo rotors for the Grand Prix. Your not going to want to know how much one of those costs though.
