<<To clear up, if one of the front burners is lit, there is a healthy spark from all four burners, and either of the rear burners will light when turned on. The problem is when attempting to start the rear burners by themselves—the gas flows, but there's no spark from the igniters.

Ahhh. Since you have a spark, there's about a 90% chance that the problem is plugged burner ports. Inspect them carefully, and clean anything plugged up with a wire brush ---even a stiff tooth brush may do the job.

And look carefully for small burner carry over ports that run up the side of the burner to light the main burners. They are especially prone to getting plugged up since they are quite small.
