Are our rear calipers the same as a turbo DSM? For that matter, are they the same as a non turbo as well? Replacing my brake lines involved me finding one to be all cross threaded in the caliper....

Ohh, and for those who are still rolling on stock brake lines, I really suggest you replace them; both of my rears were almost torn through

I know for sure that fwd and awd rear calipers are different on 1g dsm's. So I would assume that GVR4 calipers are the same as 1g awd calipers.

The caliper must be from a 91+ AWD DSM as the 90 AWDs have a different internal piston diameter.

Correct, the 91+ is slightly bigger than 90 and FWD model calipers, however the rotors/pads appear to be same.
