    Ah yes - I was thinking of the rears!

    Plus I also thought at first you needed new hubs, but thankfully you don't :-)

    Does anyone know a good guide for mk4 rear calliper conversion?
    I have;
    Mk4 callipers
    Vr6 brembo rear discs
    New VW rear bearings
    Vr6 rear pads

    Do i need a new mk4 handbrake cable and cable clips? Do i use the vr6 rear carriers with the mk4 callipers? Any guide to removing and replacing the handbrake cable including new clips?

    What about cable clips? Are these to attach the cable to the rear beam? Just ordered mk4 handbrake cables, will these be wrong?

    Ordered them already! I've got brembo discs, vr6 pads, mk4 callipers, dust seals, mk4 handbrake cable, mk4 clips, vr6 wheel bearing kits, goodridge conversion hose...
    Think thats the lot, was only going to change the rear discs then things escalated...
