    Is there a kit for changing the rear brake rotors to at least match the same size as the front rotors?

    That requires more than just a kit to adapt suspension components to larger rotor. You need to also have a very tiny brake caliper for such large surface in order to avoid rear wheels lock up.

    Despite that, wouldn't it look weird? Rear brakes are always smaller and seeing them equal would be kind of... weird to me.

    It looks weird to me that the rear is so small. I'd like it to be the same size as the front. I thought if the front wheel could handle that size rotor the rear wheel could too. Oh well, not a big deal was just thinkin about it.

    We put larger rotors and calipers (thicker rotors too) on my RAM - try this place:

    we can do that!

    Large brake rotors are a thing of beauty.
