Product Description

EMPI's bolt-on disc brake kit converts 1955 through 1963 Type 2 Bus models from drum to disc brakes. The kit features heavy duty brake caliper brackets that bolt directly to your stock spindles and a 5x205mm disc brake rotor that accepts the stock 14x1.5mm lug bolts. A new master cylinder with reservoir, front brake hoses, bearings, seals, grease caps, a residual pressure valve and all necessary installation hardware including Loctite and wheel studs if you are not running stock wheels. The EMPI Type 2 Disc Brake Conversion Kit will clear stock Bus 14" VW wheels, and most all stock and aftermarket 15" and larger wide 5 VW wheels. Some cap clearancing may be needed on aftermarket wheels. The disc brake conversion kit will narrow the front track width 2.09mm. The master cylinder does not have a residual pressure valve so the kit includes an inline check valve and a brake line to be used for the rear drum brakes.

    Our shipping policy is as follows:
    We ONLY ship within the United States and its territories.

    Orders over $100 will receive free shipping within the continental United States. Freight on under $100 will be $9.95. Large packages ship FedEx. Smaller packages ship US Priority Mail. Delivery time averages 1-5 business days after it ships.

    Most orders to Hawaii, Alaska, APO/FPO, Puerto Rico and other US territories are shipped by the US Postal Service. The shipping costs for these orders are billed at the time of shipping.

    For expedited shipping, you must call us. All express orders are personally handled by the representative you speak with in order to streamline the process. Please do not request express shipping via email. Emails are reviewed in the order they are received which could possibly delay your shipping.

    Shipping on any returns is the customer's responsibility. If your order qualified for free shipping and a returned item reduces your order below the $100, you will be charged the according shipping cost for the order.


    90 Day Return Policy

    You can return most unused, never installed, like-new items for 90 days from the date of receipt. Items must be in like-new condition. The following items are final sale:
    • Special order items
    • Special order upholstery
    • Electrical items
    • Installed carburetors
    Like-new Condition: JBugs may refuse a return when the returned item is not in like-new condition. These situations will lead to refused returns:
    • Installed items
    • Items missing parts or the original packaging material
    • Items damaged in return shipping due to improper packaging
    • Carburetors that smell like fuel
    • Damage due to customer negligence
    • Items with scour marks that show installation or attempted installation from nuts, bolts, screw-driver’s, washers, etc.

    Returns must be sent in a proper shipping box.
    With the exception of parts that are shipped to you in the original manufacturer packaging (example - TMI door panels, floor pans, complete front beams, etc), please be sure to return the parts with an external box or protective packaging around the parts you are returning. Most manufacturer packaging boxes are not rated for shipping and can become damaged or destroyed as they are too thin to withstand forces applied during the shipping process. Failure to do so will result in a higher restocking/reboxing fee or outright refusal of the return if the part cannot be restocked in the same condition it arrived at you.

    • Call JBugs at 800-231-1784

    • Returns, refunds, and store credits are usually processed within 5 days upon receiving the items back.

    • Refunds, exchanges, or store credits will be given for items returned within 90 days of receipt.
