Product Description

EMPI's Type 2 1968-79 Drop Spindles fit 1968 and later Type 2 Bus models. 1968 through 1972 Type 2s must use 1973 & later brake rotors, calipers, etc. The brand new, (not re-manufactured) drop spindles will lower your Bus 2" while keeping the same suspension geometry and maintaining the stock ride. The drop spindles are designed to replace your original spindles without modification. Drop spindles will lower your Bus so a smaller tire may be necessary. For 1968 through 1971 drum brake models, new wheels will be needed as the drop spindles require 5x112 lug pattern brake rotors. Check in the "+ Additional Options:" tab above to add items as needed. These spindles are not compatible with EMPI's 5x205mm disc brake kits.

Smaller tires may be required as the spindles will lower the Bus.

Not compatible with 5x205mm Disc Brake Conversion Kits

1968 through 1970 and 1971 Buses with front drum brakes (5x205 lug pattern) will have to change the front wheels to a 5x112 pattern wheel.


The stock 14" 5x112 wheel will fit the drop spindles as will the following aftermarket wheels:10-1082 Gasser, 10-1084 Cosmo, 9731 Chrome BRM, 9697 Black BRM, 9694 Chrome 911, 9728 Black 911, 9749 Dish, 9662 Black GT-5 & 9695 Silver GT-5.
To install matching rear wheels the stock drum will have to be drilled for the 5x112 pattern, and press in studs can be installed. Or the 1971 and later 5x112 brake system (backing plates, brake shoes, wheel cylinders, hubs and drums) can be sourced from a wrecking yards and installed.

1968 through 1972 Bus models will need to install :
2 - 1973-79 Type 2 Front Brake Rotors which are sold individually.
2 - 1973-79 Type 2 Front Brake Calipers which are sold individually.
4 - 1973-79 Type 2 Front Brake Hub Bolts which are sold individually.

1968 through 1970 Bus models will also need :
2 - 1971-79 Type 2 Front Brake Rotor Hubs which are sold individually. The brake hubs use the stock inner and outer bearings and wheel seals.

A non-servo (no vacuum booster) master cylinder is recommended and includes a new brake fluid reservoir.

All of these options are available in the "+ Additional Options:" tab above.

The original dust shields are NOT compatible with the drop spindles.
