Information About Converting from Drum Brakes to Disc Brakes

A brake drum system applies friction from the brake linings and brake shoes to the brake drums which rotate along the wheel of the car. This friction becomes the stopping force of the car. Disc brakes rely on the same principles but instead of housing the major components in a metal drum, they use a slim rotor and small caliper to stop the wheel movement. The superior design of disc brakes makes them a far safer and more reliable option.

Many automotive manufacturers switched, on a widespread scale, from drum brakes to disc brakes. With the exception of late Type 2, 3, and 4 Volkswagens which were made with disc brakes on the front wheels, Classic Volkswagens we originally made with drum brakes.

Volkswagen Drum Brakes provide adequate stopping power in most circumstances. We offer the VW Drum Brake parts to restore your Volkswagen brakes to stock. If you have made changes to your VW to add more horsepower or increased the size of the wheels, or if the original brakes have a tendency to fade or lose effectiveness in high braking conditions, it may be necessary to convert to Disc Brakes.

We offer a VW Disc Brake Conversion Kit with easy install instructions. Converting to VW Disc Brakes will provide more reliable, consistent, straight line stopping power, and perform better in wet weather.
