S Series Rear Disc Swap?

ok. i know what the opinions are on this, but i want to swap to rear discs, keep my 4 lug, and NOT redrill rotors. i saw alot of things from like '11-'12 about an s series swap, but no details. i know it was overkill engineering then, they sucked, and are closed or changed names. i want an oem swap that is "cheap." the $1100 ssbc kit is nice, but way too much. i know an oem swap can prob be closer to $400. i just want the info, and maybe some things others have done. no rotor re drilling please. i know that it wont be much if any performance increase, but i want easy brake changes that look nice through the summer wheels.

yeah and his brackets are for rear ss stuff. that kind of defeats my goal of trying to go "cheap" with stock parts. because i would still have to upgrade the front brakes to ss, and since i dont want to redrill, i'd have to swap to 5 lugs. if i have the equipment, or knew some people who were machinists i would just fab up the brackets myself. i wish the guy who had the brackets for sale in '11 for $50 had been active in the past year and hadn't scrapped them by now. lol.

the cobalt 5 lugs are 5x110 right?

Brackets are for a rear saturn s series swap, not an ss rear swap
