Maybe I'll just go with that set up instead of dealing with the rear drums...
Provided that you can't buy the caliper bracket/spindle anymore, if you find a set its well worth your time to pull these off a car if found in a junkyard. I think I paid $150, but the LKQ I go to is kind of a pain. What you pay depends on the person at the checkout.

You need to get at a minimum, the ebrake cables, the soft brakelines, the spindle, the hub, and the caliper. I plan on getting new pads, rotors and wheel bearings when I get around to installing these. I think that's everything. The dust shields are optional too. The junkyard I got my set from was nice enough to use these to hold the car up at some point, so they weren't an option for me.
