Rear brake pad dimensions are very different. You would be best advised to remove a rear wheel and visually inspect the brake pads to determine which one is going to fit your vehicle.

There were 2 types of calipers on the 2006 to facelift models so take a pad off and take it to the parts shop.

Obviously different calipers were used during production. There is clearly a big difference in the size & shape of the pads which will reflect in the caliper shape & size. If you are still unsure just by looking, check your local auto parts store has both in stock and as suggested take a sample along on the day you are doing the job to match it up to purchase the correct pads.

When I had to replace my front pads on my 2008 I had the same dilemma: DB1474 & DB2243 and without taking the caliper off I wouldn't have a clue. So I went to Repco, gave them the rego and they told me I need 2243. So I took advantage of a 30% discount and bought them from the shop, in case they were the wrong ones I was able to return them, which isn't always the case with the online purchases. Funny thing is, my wife's 2013 is using the same rotors & calipers 🙂

I can only second what the other posters replied: take a pad with you to the shop, or at least give them the plate number and see what they suggest.
