  • Factory Based Calipers & Rotors
  • 2.5" Drop Disc Brake Spindles
  • Factory Ride & Steering Geometry
  • 5/8" Wider Track Width

  • EMPI's Link Pin Front 4x130 4 Lug Disc Brake Drop Spindle Kit fits King & Link Pin Front End VW Beetles from 1954 through 1965 and 1956 through 1965 Karmann Ghias. This kit will replaces your stock spindles with 2.5" drop spindles that accept 1967 and later Karmann Ghia based disc brake rotors and calipers to greatly improve the stopping power for your Vintage VW. The drop spindles also lower the front end to improve the center of gravity of your VW for better handling while maintaining the stock ride and steering geometry. These drop spindles are made for use with stock shocks. The disc brake kit includes new spindles, front rotors, calipers & pads, wheel bearings, seals, mounting hardware and instructions. As link pin spindles attach to their carrier with king pins, it is recommended to replace the king and link pins and bushings while the front end is apart. Both have to be removed to install the new spindles and can be added in the options above.

    This kit includes the following:

    Disc Brake 2.5" Drop Spindles
    4x130 Lug Pattern Brake Rotors with 14x1.5 Threads
    Brake Calipers & Pads
    Bearings & Seals
    Mounting Hardware & Instructions


    Low profile (shorter) tires must be used when installing drop spindles. We offer 145SR15 or 135SR15 tires that will fit with drop spindles. Your local tire shop can offer many other options that will work as well.

    Removing the original link pins and king pins is necessary to install the new drop spindles. New king and link pins are available in the Additional Options tab above.

    Installation Notes:
    All brake parts must be thoroughly cleaned and disc brake grease must be used on all brake pad contact surfaces or brake squeak and vibration may occur.

    15" or larger wheels must be used with the disc brake kit. 14" wheels can not be used.

    The stock master cylinder can be used with front disc brakes. However, if you are converting to 4 wheel disc brakes, you must install a large bore master cylinder.
