Default Swap Drums for Disks

I have a 2002 TS wagon which came stock with drum brakes in the back. I'm curious if it is possible to swap them out for disks like are on the new RS wagons or any of the other Impreza models with rear disk brakes. Any suggestions?

I've got all that stuff for sale if your interested. I'm doing a STI swap so I have the entire r160 rear end with rear RS disk brakes. Shipping to AK may be expensive though. PM me if you want them!

Thanks for responses. I have been talking to people and doing some research and I think what I will do first is upgrade the fronts. I think I will look to find a a wrecked RS around town that I can pickup. I would like to swap out for the limited slip rear diff eventually. Or I could just trade in my TS for one of the new RS wagons. But what the heck its almost paid for!

the RS front brakes are exactly the same as your 02 TS's are...
upgrade to WRX fronts if you want (need caliper brackets and rotors. calipers are the same)
