Any way to swap front breaks to the rear?
 
So....

I recently got the the SVT/FR break kit, and now I'm toying around with moving my stock front breaks to the rear.

Could I get/make break lines, hubs, ebreak cables and whatever else I need to do this?

Has anyone ever done this before?

There is no provision for an ebrake on the front calipers.

Just order SVT rear too. Save your self the trouble.

^^ couldn't agree more. maybe even look for a model with disc rears in a junkyard.

as mentioned, no way to make a parking brake and just to get the hubs to fit you would have to do some fabrication.

and above all else... its just not necessary.

Is there actually an SVT/FR rear kit? I've never seen one.

I hate how ugly my rusted-ass drums look showing through my FR wheels.

The rear kit was discontinued a while ago.

So...

Junkyard, BST or $1000+ kits from overpriced aftermarket companies?

Checkout the wrecking yards for the '05-'07 st set up= 10'' disc's. You'd think FRPP's would come out w/ the 10'' kit, for the earlier cars.
