    Is this what's needed for the 180 rear?

    I just want to make sure I understood this?
    Do I have to a mount that is designed for the front to use it on the rear wheel??

    yes, post-mount is post-mount whether it's on the front or rear. So the adapters are interchangeable.

    Perfect example of why I take my bike to the shop for these types of things. I've ordered so much wrong crap that would have been done correctly the first time at the LBS.

    I used the first design to mount a 180mm on the rear of mine. Either will work though, just orients the caliper in a bit of a different position then the other,
