Default disc brake 99 burban rear axle

I'm assuming that the rear axle on the wife's suburban is a 10 bolt, but I could be wrong. I am not a Chevy guy, so I do not know for certain.

I do know that I would like to convert the rear to a disc brake setup.

Any options on this? An axle swap is not out of the question either, but I have to stay with the factory 6 lug configuration.

later

take a rear axle out of a 99 and newer silverado half ton. 99-up have disc brakes in the back but i think 05? and up they switched back to drum brakes on some models.
