    Your best bet would prob be to purchase a complete rear beam (with discs). Of the top of my head roughly you would have to remove rear wheels, brake lines and handbrake cable, unbolt your old beam and bolt on new one. Re-fit alll parts. Depends how competant you are. Shouldn't take more than a Sunday mornin.

    All you need to do is change the hubs and brakes over, and get a new handbrake cable.

    Assuming you can source 4 stud discs that is
