Ive done this on my mk2 as my mk2 rear callipers  seized up on one side.

You keep your existing mk3 calliper carriers and pins and need to also use the brake lines from the mkIV as they are a banjo type that goes into the calliper end.

The mkIV carriers wont clear, some ppl make up spacers but what's the point when all the above just bolts on.
