a middle-ground solution for a early '99 is to convert to newer unit berrings and rotors. They bolt right in, and are cheaper to buy and easier to find. No modifications needed, but just buy a wheel/unit berring for a 2000, and a rotor for same, and you're set... local Advance Auto Parts normally sells them to me for about $180/ea. for the unit berring.
You have to change both the unit berring and the rotor, as they are slightly diffrent, about a 1/4" depth diffrence... if you use your old rotor it will hit the brake caliper bracket. I posted some pictures in another thread a while back... not computer savvy enough to help you out with a link, but try a search for 'rotor caliper e99' top thread should be 'break and wheel berring upgrade' in the early '99 forum
