Zero Offset Wide 5 Front Disc Brake Kit, 1964-67 Type 2 (Bus/Kombi), 498560 is a long awaited kit to upgrade the pitiful brakes on the early Type 2! The stock drum brakes are horrible even when in the best of shape, these give you massive stopping power, and of course disc brakes are self adjusting too! 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!

This kit also fits with the stock wheels!

THIS KIT DOES NOT FIT THE EARLY 1964 MODELS WITH 15" WHEELS!

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. 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.
