401480 Front 4x130 Ball Joint Disc Brake Kit - 2.5" Drop Spindle
Better stopping power is something every classic air-cooled VW can use! AC Industries has done all the research necessary to provide complete kits for the Volkswagen Bug & Karmann Ghia to make the disc brake conversion process as painless as possible. Dropped spindles lower your Volkswagen approximately 2-1/4″. This kit will widen the front track of your Volkswagen by approximately 1/2″ per side.
• (2) Rotors with 4 x 130mm VW lug pattern
• (2) Ball joint dropped spindles
• (2) Calipers with D101 pads
• Caliper mounting hardware
• Installation Instructions
NOTE: Requires 15″ wheels or larger. This kit will not work with 14″ wheels.
NOTE: Drop spindle uses ’68 and later VW Beetle bearings and seals available separately, part #498490L
NOTE: 1966 to mid-1968 ball joint front suspensions will require later model 12mm outer tie rod ends installing this kit:
• 12mm left outer tie rod end #311415811C
• 12mm right outer tie rod end #311415812C
On 1966-1968½ Bug & Ghia the customer must verify what existing spindles on the car. When switching to new replacement spindles, these are all late style 1968 ½ and later spindles that require the correct 1968 ½ and later tie rod ends. Please identify what spindles your car currently has so you can confirm if you need to buy late model replacement tie rod ends. It is the customer’s responsibility to purchase the correct tie rod ends.
• Replacement pads available here: #D101
