NOTICE

Many sought after parts are backordered these days. Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

2nd Generation: Zero Offset Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, 1966 Ball Joint Type 1 (Beetle and Ghia), Stock Height Spindles ONLY, 498530
Zero Offset Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, 1966 Ball Joint Type 1 (Beetle and Ghia), Stock Height Spindles ONLY, 498530


 
Zero Offset Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, 1966 Ball Joint Type 1 (Beetle and Ghia), Stock Height Spindles ONLY, 498530 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)!

This is product that a lot of people have been waiting for. Previously, 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 is the 2nd generation of AC Industries' NO HASSLE wide 5 disc brake kit: it is lighter and easier to install than their former kits. This kit has the 5 x 205 mm lug pattern rotors and bolts right on to the stock drum spindles.Your steering geometry and ride quality are unchanged by the installation of this kit, because you never even take the spindles off the car! Offset problems have been eliminated by retaining the stock wheel offset geometry.

This kit will fit 1966 Bug and Karmann Ghias ball joint style front suspensions. This kit will also work great on fiberglass body buggies and replica cars with the same suspensions. 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 system that require no cutting, welding, drilling, rigging, or hack type engineering to make the system "work". 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!

The kit does NOT contain wheel bearing grease, brake fluid, nor a Master Cylinder or reservoir (you'll need to order those items separately).
