66- Beetle / Ghia Titan Wilwood 4-Piston Ball Joint 5×130 Front Disk Brake Kit
Classic Aircooled VW Complete Front Kits parts by Limebug
The Wilwood / Limebug VW Beetle / Karmann Ghia Bolt on front disk brake conversion kit offers the first straight fit 4 piston all aluminium adaptor and caliper, performance drilled disk brake kit suitable across all years and front T1 Beetle suspension platforms. Built around versatile design including direct mounting with no modifications to any suspension components, the front disk brake kit is complete with all parts required to be mounted to the axle.
With the infamous brand Wilwood, the kit does not need no introduction. Tried and tested on both road and track, the high performance 4 piston caliper combined with our drilled/groove disks gives excellent heat dissipation therefore minimal to no loss of braking capacity. Perfect for track/motorsport orientated vehicles, the enthusiastic drivers and also for daily drivers to provide safety whilst driving within modern environments.
With modern traffic and ever improving stopping distances of modern vehicles on the road, it is vital to factor in stopping distances of classic aircooled vehicles for your safety, safety of others and also to protect your pride and joy. A study performed by Volksworld in 2011 showed that the standard T1 Beetle drum brake set-up had a stopping distance of 285ft (87m) from 70mph. The test was then carried out with the same Beetle fitted with a Drilled/Grooved 4 Piston Disk Brake set-up which resulted in a stopping distance of 171ft (52m), a massive reduction of 114ft in stopping distance, fitting well within the average of modern cars on the road. This would be even further improved when combining both Wilwood / Limebug Front and Rear Disk Brake Kits.
This kit works directly with the stock 1968 onward Dual Circuit Master Cylinder for both LHD and RHD T1 Beetles. The Ball Joint Wilwood/Limebug kit is also compatible with Stock Drum and Dropped Drum Spindles.
