I did some searching and I just can't seem to find the answer.

Is it possible to move the front calipers and rotors to the rear? Obviously the end result larger brakes for the rear that we all look for. I would then source a set of LGT fronts to replace those moved to the rear?

It was just a thought I had. Has anyone ever tried this?

When I changed my front calipers to 4 pots I asked the same. I believe it can't be done because of the handbrake but it was over a year ago and I can't remember the details now.

I think all the trees and solitude are getting to your head.

No you cant do this.

Completely different fitment. You could probably make up an adapter, but braking performance wouldn't be great. Front and rear calipers are generally designed very differently.
