2008 door lock actuator

Wife's 2008 Impala rear passenger door lock has not been working consistently for a while. After watching a video on how to remove it, I got it out. (I was on the right track ) Looking for a replacement I can't seam to find one for the rear door. Should I assume that the front right is the same as the rear right? Also, one popular auto parts site (Rock Auto) has them for about half what the local store has them for and even less than eBay. Does that seem right?

The front door and back door motors are usually different. The front ones can be 2-3-5 wires while the rear ones are usually just 2 wires.

Rock Auto is usually pretty good for replacement parts.

I've always used universal motors in my replacements.

That's the odd thing, they list:
Front left LS
Front left LT
Rear Left
Front right

There is no listing for Rear right. This gives me the impression that it is the same as Front right but I want to confirm this before ordering it. It is an all in one part that includes the lock actuator, and the latch and the associated cables for the levers to open the door.

That's because the right rear never goes bad.

Rock auto uses Standard parts. Looks there may be a glitch in their system.

GM parts direct shows two separate rear parts.
