Ball Joint Disc Brake Kit, 4-lug VW 4x130mm, With Stock Spindles

Here's an easy upgrade for your VW Type 1.  Swap your old drum brake system for better stopping power, and less maintenance.  This kit features Ghia style calipers and rotors, so replacement brake parts can be easily sourced when replacement time is necessary.  Spindles are stock Ghia style, and have the mounting provision to bolt the calipers directly to them. Swap your existing wheel bearings from the drums you have and install in the rotors, or we can supply new bearings.  We can even pre-install the races for you if you prefer!  Note:  Requires the use of '68 or later tie rod ends and wheel bearings.

If ordering bearings, we need to know if you have the "early" ones or the "late" ones, as the spindle diameter is larger for the late bearings.  Don't assume these cars have the correct front end components on them.  They're over 40 years old and many have been replaced!  We've seen early front ends on late cars, and late ones on early cars.  Here's an easy way to tell:

The "early" ('66 to early '68) spindle diameter is: 27mm (1.06") at the inner wheel bearing mounting area

The "late" (later 68 +up) spindle diameter is: 29mm (1.14") at the inner wheel bearing mounting area

NOTE: We recommend using a press to install the wheel bearing races into the rotors.  This brake kit will only work with stock style drum spindles. If you want drop spindles with disc brakes, you'll want to purchase a drop spindle/disc brake kit Give us a call or shoot us an email with any questions regarding this conversion.
