    i think you'd be better off, both money and brake power wise, to do an oem rear disc swap.

    i bet its cheaper than buying those aftermarket drums

    in that case the drums are cheaper. ALOT cheaper.. if your worried about the looks. cuz its rusty. And you dont need new drum brakes. Just sand it down and paint that shit black. And save for a disk swap :p
