  • EMPI's 2.5 inch Drop Spindle 4x130 Front Disc Brake Kit fits Ball Joint Front End Standard Beetles and Karmann Ghias from 1966 through 1977. This disc brake kit will give your classic VW the stopping power of modern brake technology. The disc brake kit includes new 2.5" drop spindles, brake rotors, calipers & pads, bearings & seals, mounting hardware and instructions. These drop spindles are made for use with stock shocks. 1966 through May 1968 Beetles and Ghias will need late model outer tie rod ends to use this drop spindle disc brake conversion kit which can be added with 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.

    1966 through May of 1968 models will need to swap to 1968.5 through 1977 Outer Tie Rod Ends.

    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.

    Drop Spindles can not be used on Super Beetles.

    Our Expert's Take:

    Stock drum brakes are adequate enough for a stock VW if all the components are in good working order. 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. The Standard Beetle or Karmann Ghia drop spindle front disc brake kit lowers the front suspension 2.5" while maintaining the factory ride and steering which is a plus for those looking to drop the front end a bit over stock.
