XR70 Rear End issues, advice needed

My boys xr70 rear wheel has had loose bearings since i got it, someone beat them in. Now the brake panel cracked, probably due to wheel slop. The rear shock is shot also. So I need a new rim, brake panel, and shock. I am looking at the oem parts and it is ridiculous. In my searches, I have seen some pit bike rims for much less that use a disc brake. Does anyone have any experience in this area or suggestions?

Thanks

Head over to Planetminis - tonnes of guys will have the parts in good used condition.

if the 50 shock is the same as the 70, i have a brand new one

Thanks ickfinger, but the 50's shock is about an inch shorter. I appreciate it though.
