"Should've, Would've, Could've" - Unfortunately, not all of us had the option to choose a model with the Sport package... There weren't any 5-Speed models with the Rear-Discs available in my area - so I took what I could get.
The point of this thread is to figure if someone's done, would someone attempt it, and could this become an option that others would be interested in.
Instead of criticizing and shutting down the idea of a "rear brake conversion", why not give positive constructive feedback, share knowledge, pictures or anything that would contribute to making happen?
Personally, my Rear Drums work fine but I want Rear Discs - simple.

Don't our stock engines, transmissions and suspensions work just fine as-is??? Why do we seek things like intakes, exhausts, springs, wheels, and big brake kits? Because we WANT them and we hope that someone out there will break "the norm" (<-- no pun intended) and open the doors for others...
2012 Candy Red SE Manual... I smell serious trouble.
