problem with that is, I'd still have to fork out the cash for the SVT rear rotors (indirectly).

When upgrading the front rotors to say, the EBC's, which I understand are larger, is a bigger caliper required?

you guys probably aren't into wagons but

The sedan's rear suspension is NOT compatible with wagon's rear suspension. My friend Chris and i found this out the hard way last night. The trailing arm's bolts mysteriously wouldn't line up correctly and the car gained MAD negative camber for some reason. sigh. Is there a way to adjust camber on these cars? We're obviously missing it if you can. He said he wants to light the car on fire now! lol. can't blame him either. it's a 2000 SE btw =(

There's only two factory options for the rear as far as discs. The SVT rear swap and for the 00-04 models there is an advancetrack setup which has rear discs which are smaller than the svt.

How different is the suspension from 05 to 06? Is it possible to put 06 suspension on an 05

Different enough that you can't put the fronts from an '06 onto an '05, but the rears are the same, so that part is interchangeable.
