Man i don't wanna sound rude but if you read around this question is asked on a daily basis, and i think people are a little sick of posting to it, but here ya go one last time. YES it is sorta hard if you have no knowledge of brakes and requires a lot of things to do it(money and parts). You need a complete setup for the rear and then you need to redo your fronts because your rear will be bigger than the front if you do this.

It's not a major job but the price to do it vs the actual performance difference makes it not really worth it in the end.
