88 trx 2x4 front drums

I'm in need of a set of new or aftermarket new drums. Mine are finally worn down too big for the shoes to reach them.

Its my understanding too that due to the way the 2x4 is built there is no disc conversion either.

Can a machine shop add metal to them and turn it down to specs?

Help I'm on a deer lease now that has steep hills. My rear brakes are working fine but I suspect wont last long being the only brake working.

Surely someone has had this problem before me. Partzilla don't list them.

I have put disc on 2wd 300 , but they are all 96 and up , I had to make caliper mounting bracket and used a Rancher 2wd kit ( which is no longer available from SuperATV ) , I had a 88 2wd , it was my first 300 , at one time I looked into doing a conversion , the spindle bolt pattern on the 88 is much smaller than the later models and doesn't leave much metal for the bolt holes , but I think it could be done -----the pic shows the mounting bracket I made for the later model 300 2wd , the 88 the bolt pattern is much tighter , so you can see there is not much room to pull it off
