2007 Rear Brake Rebuild

2007 Focus SES (4 door sedan) 2.0 L4
Milage: ~90,000 miles

- Daughter's car, daily driver, she lives ~100 miles away so what I want to avoid is a rescue call so I try to stay ahead of problems.
- So far there has been zero maintenance done to the rear brakes and bearings. I figure at 90K miles it's time to rectify that.
- Plan is to rebuild the rear brake system with new parts (drums, bearings, bearing seals, brake shoes, springs & related hardware, wheel cylinders, flex hoses, e-brake lines, hub nuts & dust caps). It may sound like over kill but I want the daughter to be safe and I want to be able to ignore the rear brakes for another 90K miles.

So two questions:
- Now I have seen where you can get the hubs with the bearings already installed, but I am not sure what the quality of the bearings used are as they do not specify the bearings used. Can anyone recommend a hub that comes with a quality bearing installed?
- Second question, pricing for this will be around $250 USD. I could go with doing a rear disc brake conversion if the price is right. I know it will cost more, but what is the least expensive conversion kit out there?

Thanks,
Milton
