Rear Brake Rotors: 300D vs. 300TD

Hello All,
Are the Rear Brake Rotors bigger on a 123 Wagon than on a sedan? I know the calipers are just slightly different (bigger on the wagon).
Thanks!
-Matt-

PS: Anyone have a pair (or even just one) rear rotor for a wagon?

Glad you have a sense of humor, not that anything in my previous post could necessarily pass for humor.
I just threw away two old ones about 2 months ago. Sorry for the timing...

I believe the rotors are the same. You can double check by comparing part numbers in a FastLane search. As a rule you should always replace both rotors (or calipers, pads, etc.) at the same time. Do yourself a favor when you replace the rear rotors and smear a light coat of antisieze compound between the new rotor and the hub. It makes life MUCH easier the next time around.
