Product Description

  • Modern Disc Brake Stopping Power
  • "Zero Offset" does not increase track width
  • Bolt On Kit does not require replacing spindles
  • Includes a Single Circuit Large Bore Master Cylinder

  • "The stock drum brakes are adequate enough for a stock VW if all the components are in good working order but as soon as any performance modifications are made to your VW, the original brakes should be upgraded to suit. Virtually no modern cars use drum brakes, least of all on the front of the car where most of the braking power is. Updating the brakes on your VW should be considered mandatory for any car that is driven regularly."

    EMPI's Zero Off-Set Zero Off-Set Link Pin Front 5x205 Wide 5 Lug Disc Brake Kit fits early Link Pin Front End VW Beetles and Karmann Ghias from 1954 through 1965. This kit will fit your existing stock spindles and greatly improves the stopping power on an early Beetle or Karmann Ghia. The zero offset means that the track width will not increase so there are no tire and wheel clearance issues compared to stock. The disc brake kit includes new front rotors, calipers & pads, caliper mounting brackets, a master cylinder, brake hoses, bearings & seals, mounting hardware and instructions.The disc brake kit requires the seperately sold 22-2941 & 22-2942 bearings caps which are available in the additional options tab.


    This kit includes the following:

    Front Brake Rotors
    Brake Calipers & Pads
    Caliper Mounting Brackets
    Master Cylinder
    (included master cylinder is not recommended for 4 wheel disc brakes systems)
    Brake Hoses
    Wheel Bearings & Grease Seals
    Mounting Hardware & Instructions


    (The brake pads used are softer than other types, making them quieter for the driving experience. All brake parts must be thoroughly cleaned and disc brake grease must be used on all piston to pad contact surfaces or brake squeak and vibration may occur.)

    Please Note: This product is compatible with 15 inch wheels. It will NOT fit 14 inch wheels.

    This kit will NOT work with drop spindles or disc brake spindles, it will only work with stock style, drum brake spindles.

    Please allow 2-3 days for processing on all disc brake kits.

    A Dual Circuit, Large Bore Master Cylinder should be used if converting to 4 wheel disc brakes. (The included master cylinder is not recommended for 4 wheel disc brake systems.)
