Been 40 years since I had mine apart but I believe that is correct. Also remember it is a PIA to reach around that part to get the clip on the bar connection when the window is in a certain position. Other than the spring in the motor regulator section there is little to no mechanical advantage so motor strains to lift the heavy glass. Suggest trying to lube the lower curved guide and inner panel track sliding parts well with a non drying water resistant lube and be sure to adjust the window position in the upper curved fuzzy lined channel to be as well centered as you can get to present as little friction as possible.

On the motors, I don't know if you had planned to use the aftermarkets on the quarters like you did the fronts but as far as I know the modern motors have not been tested for strength to see if the same motors as used in front can raise the quarter windows.
