Product Description

EMPI's 2.5 inch drop spindle Front Cross Drilled and Slotted Double Drilled Disc Brake Kit is drilled for the 5x130 Porsche 5 lug pattern with 14x1.5mm threads and the 5x4.75 Chevrolet 5 lug with 12x1.5mm threads. The double drilled 5 lug disc brake conversion kit fits Link Pin front end Beetles and Karmann Ghias from 1954 through 1965. 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, front cross drilled and slotted silver zinc plated rotors, calipers, premium brake pads, dust caps, bearings & seals, mounting hardware and instructions. Pressing out the original link and king pins is necessary when installing new link pin spindles. Replacement king pins and link pins are available in the Additional Options tab.

Low profile (shorter) tires must be used when installing drop spindles. We offer 145SR15, 135SR15 and 165/45R15 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.

This kit includes the following:

Cross Drilled and Slotted Silver Zinc Plated Front Brake Rotors
5x130 & 5x4.75 Lug Patterns
Brake Calipers
Premium Brake Pads
Dust Caps
Wheel Bearings & Grease Seals
Mounting Hardware & Instructions

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

Please Note: This product is compatible with 15 inch wheels. It will NOT fit 14 inch wheels.

Drop Spindles are not compatible with Super Beetles!

Please allow 2-3 days for processing on all disc brake kits.

A Dual Circuit, Large Bore Master Cylinder should be used if converting to 4 wheel disc brakes.
