i have an OBS, w/ rear drums...

i want to upgrade to a set of RS or legacy rears...

my rear drums are shot, the shoes are shot... and my inspection is due by the end of the month... the brakes in their current condition will not pass

i want to take the car to a shop to get it done, not comfortable doing a drum>disc conversion myself...

anyone know any good shops in the north hills of pittsburgh area that'll do this for me, w/o a bunch of hastles beyond ordering parts?

and should i go w/ RS or legacy rears...

Yeah... It was a great swap. If you've got all the right parts and don't have the rust issues I had... it's very easy to do. I had some down time as I had an issue with a half shaft rusted solidly to the rear hub so I had to pick up a used half shaft... other than that it was great! I know a guy in Oregan that could probablly get you the parts.

Thanks - Jon
