Will These Calipers Work?

I have a 1988 10th Anniversary rx7 and I need rear brake calipers. Mechanic says he can't find them. I found these here but wanted to run it by you all first before dropping the money on them and then having the mechanic tell me that it won't fit.


Online the auto zone site says that it fits my car but it seems too good to be true since it's even hard to find the remanufactured ones.

You need calipers which are for "AAS" or hard/HD suspension, or vented rear rotors. All solid rear rotor FCs use the same brake caliper and all vented rear rotor FCs use the same rear brake caliper. To use the 4 pot or FD calipers up front on a 5 lug car with single piston calipers, you just swap the caliper and the disc. Same with the rear; they all bolt up the same.

They look like the correct calipers to me.
