    I don't know why you keep asking for a price, I don't have one for you. You may find a deal on the parts, you may not, you may choose or not choose to do or use the same parts I did. It's completely subjective.

    If you have a question about how hard it is I can help you with that.

    No it's not hard. A little time consuming, but not hard.

    greg, did you ever need to switch the brake master cylinder? i heard a long time ago if you put rear disc's, 5 lug or 4 lug set ups, that you needed to get the brake master cylinder as well. and i looked on majestics site, and the bmc's are different part numbers between lx and ex/v6 ones. it was a while ago when i looked, haha, so i dont remember if the ex was different from the v6, but i looked mostly at the v6 since i want to do the 5 lug.
