The “Really Good Wide Five Disc Brake Kit”, for the 1955 to mid 1967 Volkswagen bus. Engineered and made right here in our shop, this is probably the best wide five front disc brake kit available for the early VW bus. We start with a very large expensive chunk of 6061 aluminum, we put it in our big CNC lathe and after that our milling machine and then we do the same for the brackets, after some time we have a really nice bus disc brake kit.

Please understand that we build these kits, in our shop and usually assemble to order – as they come in, and you may have to wait weeks or more. If you want to know how long just email us.

This kit uses your stock VW grease caps.

This kit uses stock size Volkswagen bus wheel bearings and seals and utilizes a vented  Porsche 944-911 rotor, for great consistent braking.
