  • Factory Based Disc Brake Upgrade
  • Stock Style VW Disc Brake Spindles, Calipers & Rotors
  • Simple, Bolt On Installation

  • EMPI's Ball Joint Blank Disc Brake Kit fits Ball Joint Front End VW Beetles from 1966 through 1977 and 1966 Karmann Ghias. The kit can also be used on 1967 through 1974 Karmann Ghias to replace the original components. This kit will replaces your stock spindles with stock VW style (modeled after 1967 and later Ghia) disc brake spindles and greatly improves the stopping power for your Vintage VW. The disc brake kit includes new spindles, front rotors, calipers & pads, mounting hardware and instructions. 1966 through May 1968 Beetles and Ghias will need late model inner bearings, wheel seals and outer tie rod ends to use this disc brake conversion kit. The later model parts can be added in the options above. The blank disc brake rotors must be drilled out for the lug pattern of your choice.

    This kit includes the following:

    Stock Height Disc Brake Spindles
    Blank Brake Rotors
    Brake Calipers & Pads
    Mounting Hardware & Instructions


    1966 through May of 1968 models will need to swap to 1968.5 through 1977 Outer Tie Rod Ends, Inner Wheel Bearings and Inner Wheel Seals.

    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.

    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 front disc brake kit uses factory based Disc Brake components that were available from the factory including stock Karmann Ghia spindles, brake calipers and rotors. That means no proprietary parts so getting replacement parts down the road doesn't require a trip to a specialty VW parts store.
