possible but abit of a pain.
Your rear caliper have mechanical handbrake mechanisms. Your fronts obviously don't. so if you fit the front to the rear....no handbrake.You might need to hook up a hydraulic handbrake....not legal but an option.
The front offet is larger than the rear so you would have to make sure the disc doesn't foul the rear strut.
They are similar sized discs so this is a bonus. The mounts for front and rear caliper will be different too so you'd need to fabricate a bracket I'd say.
You'd also need to make a spigot ring as the centre hole size is different. Since the disc locates on the spigot you'll need this. If you just let the disc "float" it will cause probs.
It's been done on WRX's before so it should be able to be done on yours.

thanks for that!:D
but just wondering how much would it cost me to do that?
it sounds like very hard to do that and even more expensive than i upgrade my rear brake too!?
