Front Disc Brake Kit, 1971-79 Super Beetle
Front Disc Brake Kit, 1971-79 Super Beetle
Price: $279.95

Front Disc Brake Kit, 1971-79 Super Beetle is a HUGE Upgrade to the stock braking system, which is borderline tolerable when operating properly.

Picture does not show it, but Inner Wheel Bearings, Outer Wheel bearings, and Grease Seals are INCLUDED!

Not included but recommended are our 340FF Stainless Steel Brake Hoses.

Also, we recommend that 1973 1/2 -1979 Super Beetles get (2) 113-611-735D brake lines, since the line has to be re-bent, and if you try this with the 30 year old line it will likely crack or break! New ones are cheap, so buy 2 so you are prepared!
