    look behind the rear wheel and see if it looks like the front wheel. If it is disc brakes, you will be able to see a silver looking disc. If it is drum it will look like a metal bowl nothing silver showing. Hope this helps you I don't know any other way to tell you, if you haven't been around cars much.
