Default Drums to Discs on an L

I realize that an L conversion thread already exists but I'm interested specifically in what kinds of costs are involved in converter rear drums to rear discs on my 98L.

I've seen some nasty prices and some not so nasty prices... just trying to gauge the average.

I paid $300 for front and rear rotors, calipers, and pads. Then another $125 for the rear hubs and parking brake cables. Finally, $100 for a set of stainless steel braided brake lines. Shipping is included in the prices.

The difference between us being that I went for all WRX parts and Jaxx went for LX parts I believe.
