yes, find a GTS that you can take the rear hubs from and swap them out, but don't forget you'll also need new brake lines and a new emergency brake line. total your probably looking at $400-500 for everything, i guessing.

keep in mind you need 16" wheels for the calipers to fit...

Actually the 16" wheels are optional for the GTS. You don't need 16" wheels for the calipers to fit.
