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 haven't ever really looked at a 2wd machine, but I've put 420 rancher 4x4 discs on a 4x4 300. I wonder if you couldn't put 420 2wd disc brakes on a 2wd 300?

I had to slightly enlarge the upper ball joint hole in the a arm to accommodate the slightly larger 420 upper ball joint. The lower ball joint is the same on a 300 and a 420 so everything attached at the ball joints and worked great.
