Lightbulb SVT brakes + damper question.

When doing the rear conversion for the Focus, can I put the front rotors, with the bigger diameter, on the rear? I know, I know, "a billion% of the breaking is on the front rotors." "Don't waste your money on that, blah, blah, blah."

I know the disc diameters are different and the caliper position is going to be different.

Is there stuff that I can switch around to do this or is there going to be welding, grinding, etc?

Just thinking out loud and would appreciate some help on this.

P.S. - What are the stiffest dampers out there for the Focus?

the front rotors are vented and the rears are not, i think, plus them being different sizes i don't think they will work

I was thinking it was the Konis. The price should have told me so. Thanks.
