Not really a home-handyman job - results may be unpredictable.

The calipers are the same on ABS and non-ABS cars. The rotors are different. ABS rotors have a tone wheel in them, this is what the sensor 'reads' to tell how fast the rotor is spinning. You could use EB ABS rotors but one thing I'm unsure of is if the EB and AU tone wheels have the same number of slots in them and whether it would affect operation if they differ.

Ask dba or check them at your local parts store for any differences...
