you have to buy an SVT brake conversion kit. There are many people on the board who have done this... sorry for the vague answer.

There are a couple kits out there. The SVT is one of them. Also there where a limited few sedans that came with them. I think it was the 04 ZTS or something like that... If you find one of them wrecked, you can transplant that to yours.

Adding rear disks, if you have to buy all new parts and don't find a wrecked SVT or ZTS, is pretty expensive. I want to say the its like $500 to add rear disks and $800 to the the SVT breaks on all 4 corners.

The brakes wouldn't have to come off a sedan they would work off a zx3 or zx5 as well.

Full SVT kit from Mike is in the upper 900's.

The Rally kit from Mike is in the low $800's.

The rear SVT kit is around $400 something
