I'd be surprised if they fit since it's a Mitsubishi-designed and built car.

Dual piston doesn't have to mean it's "better". Better bet would be better pads. Neons don't normally have rear brake issues with under performing. Many times they're already too tail happy. Balanced brakes front to rear makes it better depending on what you're doing.

The OEM original 4-piston calipers in the front of my '68 Chevelle suck. I would love to swap to the "standard" single piston caliper for that car.

my car isnt tail happy with me at all. my cavalier was more tail happy then this car is, this car sticks to the road better then any of my other cars.

an srt brake setup can swap in with little work. but yeah better pads and maybe some discs would work.
