Need help finding driver side rear caliper 86-87 Maxima for my Triumph project

Hello all,
Up front I don't have a Maxima but I have a rear disc brake modification on a 1971 Triumph TR6 that requires 1986-87 Maxima calipers. I have been able to find reman right side or passenger side calipers, but the left side or drivers side seem to be not available anywhere not even ebay! I'm just wondering if the calipers are interchangeable at all? Maybe someone can point me in the right direction? There is a caveat to this apparently Nissan made a change to the caliper mounting bracket mid 87 so not all brackets of that year will fit for example the Beck Arlend calipers wont fit. Soooo that is my predicament. Any suggestions are appreciated. Cheers and thanks in advance

Yeah I dont there is O Reillys in Canada? My Zip code in BC doesn't work usually I try Blaine Washington. Yup seen these but I need it with the mounting bracket. good news is the passenger side caliper arrived and fits like a glove with just some minimal grinding.

yup they don't have it tried Lordco auto parts and they have the Beck Arnley ones but these totally don't fit because of the mounting bracket shape. Well I'll just keep trying. Thanks

you guys have Pick N Pull in BC? you can check their inventory every once in a while, the odd time Bucks or Pick N Pull here in Edmonton get a 2nd gen

otherwise look into seeing if 3rd gen rear disc brake calipers will transfer over, i know struts between 2nd gen and 3rd gen cross over, maybe the calipers do too
