    Hi I currently have EK4 and was looking to do a 282 Conversion. i found 96 spec dc2 Calipers and carriers and also a 99 dc2 calipers and carriers. Which one will be a direct fit ? The 96 Spec caliper and carrier are 262 mm will a 282 MG disc fit the caliper ? Some forum said the 99 dc2 caliper will also need a dc2 knuckle is that true?

    Thanks

    98+ onwards are a direct fit. Yes get the MG disc and youll be done. Nothing else is needed.

    Correct. I'd change the brake lines while you're at it to braided as yours will be old anways, assuming yours are still oem.
