    Looks like Kelsey-Hayes caliper.

    You don't need the springs-- just use the rubbery pad adhesive(CRC Brake Quiet or such) to stick the pads into the caliper. It'll help the pads retract when the brake is released as well.

    They look to be already fixed to a caddy, but yes they will work, although the pedal will have a lower breaking point unless you do this....

    they look like my brake calipers and was wondering if they should have some sort of spring like other brakes to help the caliper move....? Do you mean these brakes dont? As all I can see is the retainer bolts might let the caliper move...
    Does that make sence?

    There just mk1 gti brakes with grooved discs, you can see the vw II cast into the caliper.
