Default rear brakes

i was just wondering if anybody knows if the rear brake setup on the urbancruiser would pretty much be a straight forward swap over on the xD. i know its a really un-necessary swap and all but i just prefer the way disk brakes look over drum, and it also helps that i dont know how to work on drums. lol thanks alot

If im not mistaken I think the rear brakes are only available on the 4wd model, so I think that may hamper a few things. The Vitz RS on the other hand may be something better to look into

According to toyota.co.uk, all versions use solid discs on the rear.

I would be interested as well, especially since I often tow trailers. I haven't had any problems, but you can't go wrong with better braking! I would want to know that the master cylinder, booster, and ABS/TRAC/VSC pump are the same on both versions.
