2nd Generation: Zero Offset Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, 1967-68 Ball Joint BEETLE, Stock Height Spindles ONLY, 498540
Zero Offset Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, 1967-68 Ball Joint Type 1 (Beetle and Ghia), Stock Height Spindles ONLY, 498540
Kit does NOT include Master Cylinder (sold separately)


 
Zero Offset Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, 1967-68 Ball Joint Type 1 (Beetle and Ghia), Stock Height Spindles ONLY, 498540 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 1967 – 1968 Bug and Karmann Ghia’s with 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).
