Brakes Question

This might sound stupid but here it goes, im getting the brembo package and i will replace my rotors and brakes in the front.

Can i put the stock front brakes and rotors to the back?

The challenge with the stock front rotor/caliper isn't going to be clearance, but mounting the caliper and if the front rotor will fit on the rear axle. Since no one offers a relocation kit, I doubt you can do it. Instead, some companies offer rear rotor upgrades to 13" rotors with rear caliper relocation. Then you can upgrade the pads.

Changing the rears are not worth the investment unless your a hardcore track person. Just but the fronts and call it a day.

Agree with the above. You won't see any noticeable difference as 85% of your braking comes from the front.
