I've been searching. Will the rear spindles, calipers and carriers swap over to a MK2 Jetta from a B4 Passat?

i dont know much ab out passats, is it a 16v maybe? I think there is a 16v passat that uses banjo fitting on caliper so you can use a mk4 rear caliper without any other mods!

Without taking the time to look and see what years the B4s were, I'd say that the calipers and carriers will work, but I don't know about the stub axles. I was looking that the brakes on a Passat (must have been 96 or later) that had DE front calipers, and the rears were still the same MKIII iron calipers and carriers.
If you want some MKIII rear calipers, I have some for sale that are currently on my 97 Jetta GT. $50 shipped, and they work. Pads are shot, but I may have another used set with some meat on them.
