No one has done it. They don't make a kit. I don't think that there is any setups on other cars that will work either.

Advice or suggestions? Buy a 2000+ hehehehe

It seems that I've been told you may have to forfeit your ABS functionality to do so. You can live without it, but as I understand there are many variables in the ABS system that would have to be recalibrated or re-tabled in order for you to retain ABS with rear discs.
