Nothing is known to exist so you'd have to come up with a solution on your own.

To retain the 5x100 and have bigger drums, it has not been pioneered physically.

And why would you want it?

If you are willing to tear the damn thing apart, go to the discs.

Your '92 has "not bad" brakes, so go 4-wheel disc as an upgrade.

Not sure of how much of an upgrade it would be, but later model J-bodies have 9" rear drums.
