OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, Ball Joint, 2 1/2" Lowered
Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, Ball Joint, 2 1/2" Lowered


 
Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, Ball Joint, 2 1/2" Lowered is an all inclusive kit that has everything but wheel bearing grease and brake fluid! This kit will retain your vintage Wide 5 wheel bolt pattern,
and basically triple your braking power! ACN Recommended!
Wide 5 Disc Brake Kit, Link Pin, 2 1/2" Lowered features the early VW 5 Lug Pattern, which is 5 x 205mm. The hub and rotor were engineered in two pieces, because the 5x205mm lug pattern is so large. The Hub is cast and machined from 356 Aluminum and then heat treated to a T6 rating. The machined SAE Certified Grey Iron Rotor is then firmly secured to the 356 T6 Aluminum Hub.<P>The Spindles are BRAND NEW Chromoly Steel. Your steering geometry and ride quality are unchanged by the installation of this kit, because you'll use stock length shocks for a better ride than "shortened shocks" on lowering jobs done via any of the beam or leaf methods. Being able to get shocks anywhere is a bonus too! These new spindles are stronger than any other aftermarket spindle, including welded ones. This all adds up to a perfect set of spindles that; drops your car a full 2 1/2", retains stock steering geometry and stock length shocks, improves handling, and uses the stock early VW 5 lug pattern.

At the time of order, you must specify the year and model of your car, and you also must specify if you are using Flat-4 wheels, because the included wheel stud lengths are different for those wheels! We want to make sure you get what you need the first time!

***This kit increases tire offset by 7/8" on either side. To prevent this offset increase, a Narrowed Beam is recommended!***
