Anybody know if there are any rear brake calipers from other cars with the same bolt spacing that would be the equivalents of the Civic/CRX caliper swap on the front (exactly the same as stock or very slightly better, no crazy rear brake bias)?

Our brake pads and other brake parts cross reference with 84' to 87' Honda Preludes as do seals and snap rings. Pictures seem pretty close to me too--anybody tried it?

I will probably just rebuild the one that is wearing pads funny and making noise, but I wondered if I could get a set from the junkyard of something easily equivalent or slightly better.
