Default Rear disc conversion

Sorry if there is a thread for this.



Was just wondering if anyone does or has plans to make a rear disc break conversion for the ION?
Links, Phone numbers, anything for this?

The ION Redline has rear disc brakes. This should be the easiest way to upgrade an ION with rear drum brakes. I think it may be even more expensive than just the brake components because you might have to get larger wheels and new tires to fit over the Redline discs. (The Saturn.com description of the Redline only mentions larger FRONT discs, and the ION Redline also comes with standard 17" wheels.)

also the ion red line has 5 bolt wheels while the normal ion is 4 bolt. you'd need some other stuff to put the ion red line rear discs onto a non-red line ion.
