Zero Offset Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, Link Pin Type 1 (1949-65 Beetle and Ghia), Stock Height Spindles ONLY, Includes Dual Circuit Master Cylinder and Reservoir, 401498-BD
Zero Offset Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, Link Pin Type 1 (1949-65 Beetle and Ghia), Stock Height Spindles ONLY, Includes Dual Circuit Master Cylinder and Reservoir, 401498-BD


 
Zero Offset Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, Link Pin Type 1 (1949-65 Beetle and Ghia), Stock Height Spindles ONLY, Includes Dual Circuit Master Cylinder and Reservoir, 401498-BD is an all inclusive kit that has everything but wheel bearing grease and brake fluid! This kit is an incredible deal, it even includes the Master Cylinder and Snap-In Reservoir! This kit lets you retain those Wide 5 wheels that you absolutely have to have (even if they are the stock rims), and triple your braking power with self adjusting disc brakes!

NOTE: You can NOT use this kit with dropped spindles! 15" or larger wheels are also required (no 13 or 14" rims)!

Your steering geometry and ride quality are unchanged by the installation of this kit, because you never even take the spindles off the car!

This kit is a product that a lot of folks have been hoping would be developed. This is not a "Race Quality" kit, since racers require the lightest parts possible! But if you are not a Weight Weenie, this kit may be just what you were looking for! All the disc brake kits that were economically priced in the Wide 5 pattern kick the wheels outboard, and cause tire/fender clearance issues. This kit retains the factory offset (hence the term "Zero Offset") to eliminate this issue!

This kit has made it possible to get all the superior braking advantages for your Volkswagen without the compromises. This kit is a 100% bolt-on systems that require no cutting, welding, drilling, Ghetto-rigging, or hack type engineering to make the system "work".

Offset problems have been eliminated by retaining the stock wheel offset geometry. In fact, with the exception of the rotor and the caliper bracket, all of the parts in this kit are stock VW replacement parts! So when the time comes for brake pad replacement, you can purchase them at any auto parts store, instead of having to plan weeks ahead and pay $70+ for proprietary pads that they will not tell you where the pads come from! The ease of installation of these kits is a bonus for the do-it-yourselfer and can be accomplished with standard tools in about 4 hours of work. AC Industries did their homework on this kit, much like VW did with the Beetle and Ghia design for decades, because this product looks very simple but is incredibly engineered so that it is easy to install and works very well.

The only drawback to the kit is the weight of the rotors. They are cast iron and quite heavy. But as we said before, if you are not a racer or weight weenie, these are just the ticket for your Wide 5 driver!
