For high horse power Baja Bugs & Off Road Buggies, Disc Brake Kits give safe and controlled stops every time. IRS (Independent Rear Suspension) is the preferred rear suspension off road and we have multiple options for the rear of your Dune Buggy or Baja Bug. The disc brake kits without an emergency brake are recommended off road only vehicles. Street legal dune buggies, will want a kit with an emergency brake.
IRS rear suspension is very common off road due to the limited camber change and amount of wheel travel it provides. IRS rear suspension was standard on VW Beetles starting in 1969 and was used all the way up to 1979 in the Super Beetle. Rear disc brake kits come in the wide 5x205mm VW pattern, the 4x130mm VW pattern, Porsche's 5x130mm and a Chevy 5x4.75" lug pattern. Blank disc brake kits are offered if you want to drill your own lug pattern.
