NEED Help 944 rear brake pads

Ok guy, I ordered new front and rear rotors,and front and rear brake pads. I just bought this $300.00 1984 Porsche 944 about 4 weeks ago. I installed the front rotors and brakes with no trouble. Now the prior owner took the calibers off back in 2007 and had them rebuilt. He had them in a box. I installed the rear rotors and calibers no trouble. I went to install the rear brake pads and they were to small. I ordered another set of rear brake pads yesterday again to small now I had an extra set of front pads tried those they fit on the in side of the rear rotor and the pin holes lined up. I go to the outer side of the rotor and they rub the rotor and stick out a little high. Here is a video and picks.

This is the front pad it fits in the rear caliper the pin holes line up


Front pad again but it needs about 1/8 shaved off but not going to mess with brakes like that.

This is the rear pad I got, the pin hole are to close together and pad is to small. Ordered the rear pads from two different stores and both are the same size

Those must be front brake calipers you have fitted to the rear, they simply won’t work as the front pads are too big for the rear rotor. Am I stating the obvious or am I missing something?

I know when they went to abs brakes the hub size on the rotors changed to accommodate the abs brakes. Not sure if this helps

Ok after checking part numbers your car should have the exact same rear calipers as my 924S. This is what they should look like including a measurement

Never, ever trust the monkeys behind parts countre!!! The invoice doesn't say front or rear or left or right caliper and their system is confused. Porsche ownership will cost you tonnes because of incorrect database at parts stores. If you want anything, be sure to bring original in so you can match it up with what they think is replacement.

Most likely these will fit, bring in your pads+frames and try them on first:

Thanks guys, I ordered a set off ebay today, i just bought this car for 300 about 4weeks ago. The prior owner bought this crap from Napa back in 2007 the car has been sitting for 12 years. We came to the conclusion that who ever made these for Napa they got the rear bolt mounting bracket right but left the front caliper molding in so its a half and half lol
