New from AC Industries is this 5 x 205mm lug pattern disc brake kit with lowered spindles. This kit will fit all Bug and Karmann Ghia’s with the 1966 and later ball joint style front suspensions and will lower the car approximately 2.5″ and maintain the stock ride quality (see note below). This kit will also work great on fiberglass body buggies and replica cars with the same suspensions where you desire to lower the car.
This kit includes:
• (2) front rotors
• (2) floating calipers
• (1) set of premium disc brake pads
• (1) pair new lowered disc spindles
• (2) stainless steel DOT approved brake hoses
• Bearings and seals*
• Mounting hardware
• Step by step instructions
*We can install the wheel bearing races for a small additional fee: #IRACE
NOTE: Requires 15″ wheels or larger. This kit will not work with 14″ wheels.
NOTE: All lowered spindles on the market today will move the wheels outward towards the fender of the car by approximately 1/2″, making the front end wider. Please consider this before you purchase any brake kit with lowered spindles and plan on this offset with the tires/wheels you will install.
NOTE: 1966-1968 ball joint front suspensions will need to use outer tie rod ends from a 1969 and newer front end when installing this kit:
1969 on Left outer tie rod end #311415811C
1969 on Right outer tie rod end #311415812C
NOTE: On 1966 Bugs or Karmann Ghia’s the Brake hose that come in the kit will be to short. You will need two #211611701SS hoses
NOTE: To use this kit on a Thing you will need to change both lower control arms to Bugs. A stock thing has raised spindles that are approximately 3″ higher than a bug. In stalling this lowered spindle kit will lower your Thing approximately 5.5″:
Left lower Bug arm #131405151A
Right lower Bug arm #131405152A
