I am upgrading to Disc and have come across a set of XT shifter/levers and two Saint calipers. My problem is that Both calipers are Front calipers. One is a 8" boxer mount caliper and the other is a 8" 51mm mount caliper. I am puting these on a bike with 51mm F&R and 6" rotors. Are these calipers Identical. I have not received them yet and am planning on getting some 6" 51mm adapters and goodrich hoses. Also are these 6" 51mm adapters the same through the models (XT,XTR,LX,Hone) I got a good deal and hate to pass them up $50 each brand new with the rotors, I plan on selling the rotors to offset the caliper cost. I got the Shifters for $70 brand new. Anyone Help me out?

That's a good price. The calipers should be the same for the front and rear, you'll just need to purchase the proper adaptors.

I cant see them making a front and rear specific.The part # for all their calipers seem to be the same. That is what I was hoping . Thanks Will
