New from AC Industries is this 5 x 205mm lug pattern disc brake kit with stock height spindles. This kit will fit all Bug and Karmann Ghia’s with the 1966 and later ball joint style front suspensions. This kit will also work great on fiberglass body buggies and replica cars with the same suspensions.
The kit come with two front rotors, two floating calipers, one set of premium disc brake pads, one pair new stock height disc spindles, two stainless steel DOT brake hoses, bearings and seals, all mounting hardware with step by step instructions.
NOTE: Requires 15″ wheels or larger. This kit will not work with 14″ wheels.
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 Bug. A stock thing has raised spindles that are approximately 3″ higher than a bug. In stalling this Bug spindle kit will lower your Thing approximately 3″:
