Can't help you with rear rotors only for $100, but I can help you with all four rotors, and pads for $88:

Coated Centric blanks for $26/ea. Pads of your choice and you're still under $100 total.

Just fyi, many rotors, especially in the rear, might take a second set of pads. Have you measured them to see if they're above min. thickness? Mine were only halfway there at around 120,000 miles (in a manual). But, blank Balo rotors have been good for me...and get Textar pads ( OEM maker) at around $80 for rotors (pair) and $40 for pads.

Probably the most important part of your car for safety. Don't buy crappy stuff and don't worry about getting dust on your wheels either. Just saying! Lots of guys more fussy about how their wheels look than how they stop.

This is true for pads, but there's nothing more to expensive rotors than there is in the cheapest Chinese blanks on the market. They're just chunks of cast iron. Get the cheapest you can find and spend the savings elsewhere.

But they do list the rears only:

If you want the whole set of 4, send them a message, and see if they will list a set. I'm sure they must have them.

This is the same basic kit I bought, but mine came with new wear sensors.https://www.ebay.com/itm/Front-Rear-...7d531fdce9b594 About $20 more but they are very sensitive to water. Twice the worn pad light has come on, once after a car wash under body flush and again in the rain. Otherwise they work fine. Won't fit a very though.
