Brake Converstion Question

I have a Celica GT with stock 15 " Rims.. but I am about to change them to the GTS 16 Inch Rims...

My question is... Should I change the Rear Drum Brakes to the GTS Rear Disc Brakes?

If so and even if I do not have to..

Where can I purchase the GTS Rear Disc Brake kit and how much should it cost?

Do any of you know where I can get them installed too around Maryland or VA?

well the rear disc brake conversion is kinda tricky since you have to change the whole hub and run the new E-Brake line. also the only place i know to look is at the junk yard or find someone who totaled their car in a front end collsion. not worth the trouble but the conversion would be nice. Oh and you might need the GTS Master brake cylynder also.

but if you just throw gts rims on the car... do not put an "s" next to your gt... or claim your car is a gts... those true beleivers know it isnt and will screw you!

yeah, the link trog posted to SSBC is everything you'll need for a rear drum-to-disc conversion. I'll probably be getting this done soon unless I just go with a Big Brake Kit up front and ssbl's all around...
