The fronts are just rotors from a mark VII with abs, they just swap out. I bought new seals. The rear, I just swapped the whole rear end. You need to find one with posi, will come with a 3.27 gear (I like that gear a lot) and its wider then the stock rear end. Makes the fender-wheel ratio look a lot better.

Search if you need more info, its been covered enough times. Also has some good tech articles.

the front calipers are also bigger on the Mark than the bird. I believe the bird was 60mm piston and the mark has 73mm. I did the caliper swap with original bird rotors and noticed a little better braking. Nothing huge, but still better.
Currently birdless, but will get another someday!
