    I have a 89 accord lx-i and need new drums so I thought if its around the same $$$ I would just go w/used disks and know what I need and how to but am having probs getting a reliable quote from the junkers so I thought I would ask if anybody has done a similar drum to disk and how much did it run u total,dosnt have to be exact car just a example figure so I can make a judgement call.thank you.

    $180 for parts to my Civic, but that was on the cheap side.

    Expect to pay about $250 average for everything you need to do a rear disc swap- maybe less since you're dealing with an unpopular model (for mods).

    Nice. My rear swap ended up costing somewhere slightly north of $500 overall, but that included:

    Trailing arms
    11 inch rotors
    Calipers
    Caliper relocation brackets
    SS lines
    E-brake cables
    Pads
    Poly bushings

    Yup. :)
