yes, rear



just replaced mine last weekend. It's super easy to replace, hardest part is bleeding the brakes (for me anyway, just because it's tedious)

There are two bushings at the bottom of the reservour that leak a lot. Its good to replace those, but as a safety measure I got two lager hose clamps and fastened the reservour to the cylinder.
