Default If I upgrade my front brakes, can I swap the stock front to the rear?

anything is possible, but not without a lot of fabrication...so i would say no, it would not be easy, wise, or cost effective.

I think you would really mess up the brake bias also. You need to crunch a lot of numbers and really know what your doing to get the proper bias to allow for maximum stopping ability.
