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 don't have a 300 but I suspect that you could do a disc brake conversion (may require some fabrication to work?) if you wanted too badly enough. You can put used brake drums on the bike too, if new ones are unavailable. Are your front brake shoes in good condition and the brake adjusters screwed out where they belong? One or more of those may need to be readjusted...? Another possibility is some air needs to be bled out of the front brakes hydraulic lines/wheel cylinders.
