Hello Fellow Nissaners!

I am about to replace the brake pads on my 2001 Altima GXE. They are extremely noisy (the car has about 20K miles) and squeak more often than now.
I am puzzled by the fact that I do not know if the 2001 GXE has rear disc brakes. I am under the impression that only the SE model has disc brakes on all 4 wheels.

Can someone clarify if the 2001 GXE has front Disc and rear drums or if it is disc brakes all around?

Thanks for your time and help,

All the GXE and 1.8L have discs on the front and drums on the back; the Spec V and the SE 2000-01 have all disc.
Sorry I was thinking about a Sentra, I'm not sure about the Altima; I know my mom's 96'Altima GXE had discs on front and drums on the back though!
